Biloxi Schools honored for music education
The Biloxi Public Schools District in Biloxi has been recognized by The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation as among the Best Communities for Music Education. The awards program recognizes outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students and community leaders who have made music education part of the curriculum. Designations are made to districts and schools that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education.
The NAMM Foundation designated 527 of the nation’s 13,515 school districts this year as Best Communities for Music Education and 92 individual schools as SupportMusic Merit Award winners. These districts and schools set the bar in offering students access to comprehensive music education.
In Biloxi, the school district has seen a dramatic increase in student participation in music classes and is soon breaking ground on a new performing arts center, according to a NAMM press release.
