Re: 5A/6A Head Director
It also depends on the particular situation. Every situation is different. Many 5a/6a HDs are on the administrative scale, so they donít have conference periods per se. Some only oversee their campus band program, some are in charge of the entire cluster of bands, some are essentially assistant DFAs and are in charge of all music programs within their clusters. It really depends on how the district has it set up. The more far reaching the HDs responsibilities, means much more staff to oversee. Remember that as an assistant you donít get to see everything happening within a program. There are a lot of fires that pop up on a weekly basis that get put out that you are unaware of. How districts handle finances differs as well. Some places itís easier to spend money than others. Some places require an inordinate amount of paperwork just to spend money and process payments. So there are a lot of factors to consider.
