Re: UIL with no uniforms
If your administration wants the same result as other bands have in terms of ratings and going to Area Marching Contest, they need to be told that they have to provide what the other bands have. That includes uniforms, the same level of equipment, the same amount of staff, and the same levels of support across the board including the same quality instruction at the junior highs hat feed your school. There are no shortcuts. They will get what they pay for and they need to be told that by your campus administration and by the band expert (you).
They know already, my campus admin supports me, but the district admin wants more. we aren't even at the level to go to concert and sight reading yet. I have ball parked some new uniforms, and my campus admin cannot afford them currently.
