Re: Consequences for missing rehearsal
I think that it depends on the reason they are missing. If it is a legitimate excuse (illness, dr. appt, etc.) then there isn't really too much you can do. If they are choosing to not be there then I would assign an alternate/shadow to them and let them know that if they choose not to be there then you can choose to take away their marching spot. In this case definitely talk to your admin so they can have your back and students' parent(s) so that they know what the situation is and what will happen if the behavior continues.
What things do you have in place when students miss/skip a summer band rehearsal?
