The Jericho School District's music department was recently selected as the recipient of the highly prestigious 2019 New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Presidential Citation Award recognizing school districts with well-rounded music programs that serve as models for music education programs in New York State.

NYSSMA grants this award to districts that are models for music education. Each year, NYSSMA is permitted to select a maximum of two districts from the entire state as recipients of the Presidential Citation Award.

“We are honored to be recognized by our state association for excellence in music education and the tremendous encouragement we enjoy from our school board, administration, faculty, staff, and community,” said Kati Behr, Jericho’s Curriculum Associate for Fine and Performing Arts. “I would like to thank our students and teachers for their hard work, dedication, and commitment to achieving the highest standards in classroom and performing music. An award such as this reflects districtwide support of the Arts.”
