Now in its 15th year, the Best Communities for Music Education designation acknowledges schools and districts across the U.S. for their commitment to and support of music education in schools.

The 376 school districts named by the NAMM Foundation demonstrate an unwavering commitment to providing music education for their students.

The BCME survey requires districts to answer 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 with school officials and reviewed by The Institute for Educational Research and Public Service of Lawrence, Kansas, an affiliate of the University of Kansas.
