: I'm beyond frustrated with my district's lack
: of support for and understanding of the
: arts. They want us to build great programs,
: but don't provide the funding or facilities
: to make it happen. We're fundraising to
: afford our bus to UIL.
: 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?
