Fort Bend ISD has been named a 2011 “Best Community for Music Education” by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM). The district is being recognized for its leadership in providing school-based, music education programs to young people in our community.
This year marks the 12th annual “Best Communities for Music Education” Program, which acknowledges schools and districts across the U.S. for their commitment to and support of music education in schools.
Schools are recognized based on their responses to an online survey that asks detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program, and other relevant factors about their communities’ music education programs.
The responses are verified with district officials, and advisory organizations review the data.
