Re: "Applied Music Class" during marching season
Perhaps I was not clear about the post, and I'm sorry for the confusion. I did not mean to imply that the TEKS "required" those things. What I did mean to imply was that the course is indeed available under TEKS. When the TEKS were revised for 2015-16, levels III and IV were added to the course. At that time, the consensus within the TEKS-writing team (and presented to the State Board of Education), was that this course be utilized as I described. There was indeed discussion during the approval of these TEKS that this course should indeed contain all the student expectations of the Music TEKS, and should not be used just for "additional practice." Local districts have discretion on how the course is applied.
