New Providence School District's Music Education Program Receives National Recognition for the Eighth Consecutive Year
Now in its 21st 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 Best Communities designation, New Providence answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, and support for the music programs. This award recognizes that New Providence is leading the way with learning opportunities as outlined in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The district received this designation in 2005 and in every year since 2013, a total of nine times.
