posted Apr 6, 2017, 8:13 AM by Towson High Music

Dear Music Educators,

 

The Office of Music and Dance Education is proud to announce that Baltimore County Public Schools has, for the 11th consecutive year, been selected as one of America’s “Best Communities for Music Education”. Less than four percent of U.S. School Districts share this distinction, and even fewer have had such a longstanding tenure on the list!

 

We wanted to share this news with you because this award is truly yours: it is a testament to the long-standing commitment to excellence in music education in BCPS, and to each of your individual commitments. Thank you for all that you continue to do for our children, and please enjoy a safe, restful spring break.

 

Sincerely,

 

BCPS Office of Music and Dance
