Re: Small School Band Program Eligibility Requirements

My response is going to be from the other side. If I have a student that fails four or more classes every six weeks for an entire year, I feel that demonstrates lack of effort. I will, with consult of parents, student and admin remove them from the band until they can produce two six weeks without any failing grades. Sometimes, a student that consistently fails is looking for someone to care enough to do something. I have done this and the students have begun passing. It is better to do this than let them be sitting in your band hall when they are 20 years old.
: What is your policy on eligibility in your
: band program?
: Do you remove students that are consistently
: on the failure list?
: If a student transfers in with a history of
: failing and removal from another band
: program, do you allow them into yours?
