Of only eight districts in the state, Noblesville Schools has been selected as a 2015 Best Community for Music Education winner by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation.
The national recognition highlights school districts for their outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students and community leaders in embracing music education as a part of the core school curriculum.
Districts were selected based on music funding, staffing of highly qualified music teachers, commitment to standards and access to music instruction. Researchers at the Center for Public Partnerships & Research, Kansas (an affiliate of the University of Kansas) led the national data review.
The Foundation honored 388 districts in 46 different states.
