There are many problems facing educators today. Student retention, standardized test scores, and motivational issues are only a few. It seems that students are dropping out of school at higher rates and having more difficulty finding motivation to do well on their school work and standardized tests. This sought to investigate strategies that schools employ to improve the conditions of their school environment, and increase student academic success. The study specifically addresses how music educators can contribute to their school environment and the community as a whole. Using questionnaire, surveys and interviews, it is clear that school communities are stronger when music activities are incorporated. Appended to this document are: (1) Appendix A: Classroom Teacher Survey; (2) Appendix B: Music Educator Questionnaire; and (3) Appendix C: Administrator Interview Questions. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
