Re: Band class sizes...
many school districts are talking about an A/B schedule with 1/2 of the students in school on alternating days. That is how they will cut class sizes in 1/2.
It's not just band. Your general math/English/whatever teachers have 20+ kids in a class, and most of them teach all but two periods a day (leaving one for lunch and one for planning). They can't cut those classes down to 10 kids without adding staff (and probably adding rooms).
Any school going this route will be forced into an A/B setup of some sort. There's no way they can double their capacity in staff and space between now and August.
