Community Spotlight

This recognition is further evidence of our district’s commitment to the arts, which has endured despite inadequate funding at the state level. Our staff, our families and this board have consistently demonstrated support for music education, recognizing its impact on academic achievement, and we are incredibly grateful for the added resources provided by the Irvine Company and the Irvine Public Schools Foundation. As a result of the collaboration that occurs in Irvine, music education is alive and well in our community, benefiting thousands of students.

Best Communities for Music Education-A National Music Education Recognition Program

The NAMM Foundation seeks school districts and schools with an exemplary commitment to music education to be recognized as part of the Foundation's Best Communities for Music Education (BCME) program. Now in its 21st year, the Best Communities for Music Education (district level) and the SupportMusic Merit Award (school level) offers national recognition and visibility for school music programs, and honors the efforts of educators, administrators, students and community music education champions who share in the common goal to ensure access to music for all students as part of the curriculum.

SupportMusic Coalition

The SupportMusic Coalition is a signature program of The NAMM Foundation that unites non-profit organizations, schools, and businesses working to assure that music education is supported in communities everywhere, and that all children have the opportunity to learn and grow with music.
