OSSINING, N.Y. -- The National Association of Music Merchants named the Ossining School District a Best Community for Music Education.
This is the fifth consecutive year that the quality of Ossining's music education has been awarded the designation.
“We place a premium on music education in Ossining because we know there is a strong correlation between the instruction students get in this area and their overall success,” said Ossining Schools Superintendent Raymond Sanchez.
The Best Communities for Music Education program recognizes districts where teachers, parents, students, administrators and community leaders work to make music education part of the district's core curriculum.
The program is in its 16th year and Ossining is one of 388 districts in the United States and 114 in New York to receive the award.
