Re: MB reh Aug 1st rule???
I certainly do. However, once school begins, I don't believe in requiring kids to practice MORE than 7-8 hours per week, even if its adding an extra Saturday practice. It's just too much to add to kids/families schedules when they are going to school for 8 hours every day.
You do know the 8 hour rule is modified to the TEA rule for most of August, because of this exact reason, right?
In my opinion, it would make sense for the August 1st start rule to be changed.
There is such a wide variance in school start dates that it is unfair to some schools, including mine.
It would make more sense for the rule to be set to an X amount of days before school begins instead of a blanket August 1 date. This would mean every school gets the same amount of days to have full day rehearsals and level the playing field.
Thoughts? Am I missing something?
