Music Education Hits Grace Note

Acknowledging a "commitment to and support of music education in schools,"San Diego Unified has been honored as one of America's Best Communities for Music Education by the National Association of Music Merchants. According to the association's website, "As the economy hinders state and local school budgets to adequately support music education, the 174 school districts named by the NAMM Foundation demonstrate an unwavering commitment to providing music education for their students." Congratulations to our music teachers, Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Department, students, administrators and School Board members for making this honor possible.
