The Bethpage School District has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from the NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education.

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, the district answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities and support for the music programs.

“This is a great honor for the Bethpage School District, and we are pleased to have been recognized by NAMM,” said Dr. Eric Kay, coordinator of music. “NAMM's award is a testament to our students’ and residents' appreciation of the arts, the strong support of music from the administration, the Board of Education, and Bethpage Arts and Music, our parent booster organization, and our dedicated and creative teachers, who support our students and bring out their best in music and theater.”
