The district has been named a 2017 Best Communities for Music Education, an honor awarded to school districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students.

To qualify for the Best Communities designation, the district completed a comprehensive application process, including documentation on 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.

“What an honor it is to once again receive this designation” Bayport-Blue Point Chairperson for Art and Music Paul Weber. “This is an accolade that the entire Bayport-Blue Point Community can share with pride.”
