East Irondequoit named Top Music Community!
For the fifth consecutive year the East Irondequoit Central School District has been chosen as one of the best communities for music by the National Association of Music Merchants.
East Irondequoit is one of 527 districts across the country designated this year.
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, East Irondequoit answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program, and community music-making programs. Responses were verified with school officials and reviewed by The Music Research Institute at the University of Kansas.
This recognition comes just a few weeks after the Indoor Percussion Band won the 2019 State Championship for the second time!
