Recently, West ISD received notification that our music program was once again honored with the "Best Communities for Music Education" designation from The NAMM Foundation for our outstanding commitment to music education. West ISD is one of 5% of districts across the nation to receive this prestigious award.
The "Best Communities 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, West ISD had to meet application requirements in the areas of funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program, and community music-making programs.
This award recognizes that West ISD is leading the way in music learning opportunities and designates music and the arts as important elements of well-rounded education for all students. Congratulations to our many students in the arts, their supportive parents, and amazing directors! For additional information, please contact David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.
