The award program recognizes outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students and community leaders who have made music education part of a well-rounded education. Designations are made to districts and schools that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education.
These eleven school districts are among 754 in the nation and 49 in the state to be named among the Best Communities for Music Education.
East Hanover Middle School and Ridgedale Middle School both in Morris County are among 148 schools in the nation and 13 schools in the state to receive the SupportMusic Merit Award.
The SupportMusic Merit Award is an opportunity for an individual school (public, private, parochial or charter) to be acknowledged for its commitment to music education. It is a “school-only” distinction awarded as part of the Best Communities for Music Education program.
