Re: Remote learning & band participation?
Yes the district has to decide. I have requested to our Supt that we not punish students for being remote learners. For most it is a parent decision, and it is not my desire to have have students dropped from our program because of the virus and their parent's choices. It could be difficult to have their schedule changed when they return and that's not fair. I know if this had happened to me I would have been upset to see my schedule not include band - and it wasn't even my fault. So I am a strong advocate for keep them in the program - and limit their participation where you have to - but do not allow them to be removed. You may really regret taking such a hardcore, punitive approach down the line when your numbers are down and your parent support slips away!
