This is as good of advice as youíre going to get! Admins are usually very data driven in decisions. Donít just go and say we need more money, take an inventory with you complete with conditions and depreciation for each instrument. Have numbers of students and projections of needs for next few years. I was able to get an additional $10k into our budget by having that.
That being said you do have some districts this will not do you any good. At that point I would honestly advise there are other districts out there who will support you. Being told they wonít pay for your bus to UIL is a warning sign to me. You might set up a donors choose or gofundme project for that. If parents figure out sports teams buses are paid for but yours are not...? That should help you some too.
