Re: Adjusting School Calendars (From TEA)
I wouldn't be surprised to see at the HS level and varsity/non-varsity MS level be split into smaller sized classes.
Between this kind of calendar, what is being talked about for A/B attendance, and social distancing practices that will be implemented for schools I don't thing anything is going to be the same for band for the next couple of years. I think you high school guys can forget about marching band as we know it. I don't think they will allow traditional band rehearsals as we know them. With A/B scheduling for social distancing in the content classroom small schools will be at a big disadvantage for band scheduling. Large schools may be able to pull it off if counselors/admin will try, however, forget about double blocking if you are currently doing that with what we know as A/B schedule.
I hope I am wrong but I am not going to waste a bunch of time planning anything concrete until we know the plans put on us by those above.
