MCPS Honored for Commitment to Music Education

by MCS Staff

MCPS has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education. Now in its 24th year, the Best Communities for Music Education designation is awarded to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students.

To qualify for the designation, MCPS staff answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program and community music-making programs. Responses were verified by school officials and reviewed by the Music Research Institute at the University of Kansas.

“There is no doubt of the importance of a high-quality music education in the academic and social-emotional development of our students,” said Dr. Randy Rumpf, MCPS supervisor of prek-12 fine arts. “Receiving this honor from the NAMM Foundation is a testament to the great work happening in our school music programs.”
