  • The Putnam County Charter School System is a 2019 Best Communities for Music Education designee !The Putnam County Charter School System is a 2019 Best Communities for Music Education designee !

    This is the third consecutive year that the Putnam County Charter School System has received this recognition.  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, the Putnam County Charter School System 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 award recognizes that the Putnam County Charter School System is leading the way with music learning opportunities as outlined in the new federal education legislation, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The legislation, signed into law in December 2015, and awaiting state implementation designates music and the arts as important elements of well-rounded education for all children.

    Only 4% of the school districts in the nation receive this distinction!
