Texas School District Receives National Recognition for Music Education

May 16, 2020

Eanes Independent School District in the greater Austin area has received the Best Communities for Music Education designation from the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation for the sixth year in a row. “The recognition is awarded to districts demonstrating outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students.” When making a decision, the Music Research Institute at the University of Kansas considers “funding, graduation requirements, music class participants, instruction time, support for music programs” as well as other factors. The Every Student Succeeds Act “recommends music and art as critical elements of a well-rounded education.”
