Since I arrived here a few years ago the band has been very successful. Multiple kids have made Region, many on to Area. Several went to TSSEC last year. Good scores at UIL. Numbers have increased every year, and budget keeps dropping. I've had to beg and borrow instruments from everywhere to outfit my tubas and percussion.
If you have a very supportive district/admin, especially where finances are concerned, how did you get them to see the light?
