Re: What is your Letter Jacket Criteria?
I changed mine many years ago. Many would think its pretty lax. I got tired of never seing any letter jackets with band on them. Plus, if you only have it your senior year, that's a bummer. Also, you can ride the pine for any varsity sport and letter just because.
Here is mine. Students must be eligible for and perform in 4 consecutive UIL contests (evaluations). So at the end of their sophomore year, they would letter. If any student reaches state level in any contest at any time, they would letter. I have a freshman this year that got their band letter jacket this fall. They performed in an ensemble at the state solo and ensemble contest.
Go with what you feel is right for your school and your kids!
Good Morning Yellow Board Land!!
I am looking at revamping my very lax Letter Jacket criteria.
As it stands for me, if a student makes the all region band, advances to State Solo and Ensemble, or has been in the band for 3 1/2 years, they letter.
What do your kids have to do in order to earn a letter jacket?
Thanks ahead of time!!
