Congratulations to the Pennsylvania School Districts Named as Best Communities for Music Education

The NAMM Foundation’s Best Communities for Music Education (BCME) is a signature program of The NAMM Foundation that recognizes and celebrates school districts and schools for their support and commitment to music education and efforts to assure access to music for all students as part of a well-rounded education. 

The BCME award is for a district to be acknowledged that serves students across grade levels and multiple schools.

The SupportMusic Merit (SMMA) award is for an individual school to be acknowledged.  It is a “school-only” distinction and can be a charter, private and parochial school seeking the designation.
