Just got new ones this spring. District payed 100%. With that said, I could not purchase anything until the money was secured...which meant we made the purchase in September, fitted right after UIL, and took delivery in late January. We got to pick the company within reason (IOW if they weren't too expensive). Three quotes $33K, $38K, $67K for 90 uniforms. Guess which one we DIDN'T go with. |
Anyway, admin. told me that if I wanted new uniforms for 2018, I had to have the quotes in before the end of LAST year (16-17) because the money would come from district discretionary funds available over the summer. Uniforms here need to last 10 years. I am trying to convince the admin that for the future a set amount of money needs to be set aside each year so that ten years from now we have the money available for the next set.
My super wants me to take a survey before presenting the idea of new uniforms to our School Board.
So how do y'all fund your new marching uniforms, Band Boosters, School District, 50/50, etc.?
