West Seneca Again Makes List of 'Best Communities for Music Ed' | Arts & Culture
The results of a recent survey by the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Foundation is music to the ears of the West Seneca community!
The West Seneca Central School District has been selected as one of the nation’s “2012 Best Communities for Music Education” by the NAMM Foundation for the second year in a row.
The NAMM Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to advancing active participation in music, announced the results of its 13th annual “Best Community for Music Education” survey on April 17. The NAMM Foundation acknowledges schools and districts across the United States for their commitment to and support of music education. The survey asked detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program, and other relevant factors about communities’ music education programs. The responses were verified; advisory organizations reviewed the data. Each school receiving the “Best Communities” designation scored in the 80th percentile or higher in the survey’s grading process.
