Re: Students missing or late for rehearsals in small school program
That's admirable, but you have to have some serious administrative support to pull that off, and not everyone has that. That's great that you were able to stick to your guns like that, but I don't think you can hold that up as an example and say "I did this, everyone else should be able to too."
My first game at my current school I marched 15 and had 19 on the sideline. I did have one I told to not even come to the game, because of a statement made to me. By the third game they had caught on and have not had any problems with attendance in the last 3 years.
