Arlington school system again receives national music-education accolade | news/arlington

Arlington Public Universities has been honored with a “Best Communities for Songs Education” designation from the NAMM Basis for its motivation to tunes instruction.

The district’s new music plan has “made us proud when all over again,” stated Superintendent Francisco Durán, who observed that only 4 p.c of faculty units throughout the country obtain the honor.

“I’m really, really excited,” he explained.

Now in its 23rd yr, the Very best Communities for Music Education and learning designation is awarded to districts that display remarkable achievement in efforts to offer new music access and education and learning to all learners.

To qualify for the Most effective Communities designation, faculty districts need to response in-depth queries about funding, graduation specifications, new music-class participation, instruction time, services, assist for the music system and neighborhood audio-earning programs. Responses are confirmed and then reviewed by the Tunes Exploration Institute at the University of Kansas.

The NAMM Basis is a non-revenue group supported in component by the Countrywide Association of Tunes Retailers and its about 10,300 customers all around the entire world. For information, see the Website at
