Re: The 1A proposal
I took over a 1A program last year. Since advancing to SMC in 2017, the school purchased brand new uniforms, a brand new equipment trailer, and built a band hall that would be the envy of many band programs from 1A-6A. Having been here for a year, I don't think that any of those things would have happened if the band had not advanced to SMC. If having a disproportionate amount of 1As advance to SMC means more community support for these schools or in some cases, more justification for keeping the band program alive, then I'm in favor. That was my view when I taught at much larger schools as well.
