Re: Students missing or late for rehearsals in small school program
You have to get kids to take ownership first. Then those rehearsals need to be part of their grade as well. Lastly, take say their excuses. Have food at school for those that cant go home before rehearsal. Have rewards for kids at the end of rehearsal. Ice cream, cookies, etc..
Assistant wanted some suggestions from other more experienced smalls school directors. What do you do about students that consistently show up 10-30 mins late for morning/evening rehearsals, or donít show up at all? Should it affect their grade; any incentives; any disciplinary actions? The head directors I have worked with just yell a lot and complain, but no real consequences, so the behavior just continues. Any suggestions as I move out on my own would be helpful.
