Nationally Recognized DPS Superintendent for Music Education

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Elizabeth Lolli, Superintendent of Dayton Public Schools, has been nationally recognized for her support of music education at the National Education Conference.

This award, the Save The Music Foundation’s 17th Annual Award for Outstanding Support to Music Education, recognizes a school district superintendent or CEO who is committed to restoring music education in their school district, according to a press release.

In 2019, Save The Music partnered with Dayton Public Schools to launch comprehensive music education programs in all 15 elementary schools and 3 middle schools in the district. During this project, Lolli demonstrated a deep commitment to ensuring that every student in the district has access to music education as part of the regular school day.

“Superintendent Lolli has been a champion of music education for all Dayton students,” said Jaclyn Rudderow, Senior Director of School Programs for Save The Music Foundation. “She led DPS’s efforts to make significant investments both in K-12 music programs for students and in the professional development and support of music teachers, matching STM’s investment of providing musical instrument grants to all K-8 DPS schools.”
