Re: UIL with no uniforms
Attend without uniforms. Then show your administration the comment sheets and a picture of every other band that attended.
Many times we are handed horrible situations and unrealistic expectations without any help or support. Somehow we make it work and the powers that be just say to themselves "see, you didn't need the money."
And they continue to just abuse that. At some point administration has to support the things they want and understand what it really takes to be successful.
As a profession, we need to show them the reality.
My district administration wants me to attend UIL marching, without marching uniforms. I teach at a low SES school, and having a booster club raising funds is currently out of the question. does anybody have old unifroms that are either red, black, grey or white? that they could donate to a school that really needs them. We do not have budget money for uniforms currently, or a Vendor for the distict.
