I have 45 kids in my band class. We're split A-L on Mondays/Tuesdays, and M-Z on Weds/Thurs, with Friday rotating every four weeks.
Band meets 1st period.
On average, I have 3 kids present on campus on Mondays and 4 kids on Thursdays. On Thursdays, 3 of the 4 are my percussionists, and then usually a clarinet player. Mondays, I get a trumpet player, trombone player, and a clarinet player.
Explain how I'm supposed to put together a performance with seven kids - two clarinets, a trumpet, a trombone, and three percussionists.
Yes, I can "get the music to my virtual kids" but they simply aren't doing the work in my class or any other. My campus has about an 80% failure rate right now. Last grading period we had over twenty thousand zeroes put in the gradebook campus-wide. We only have 1100 kids.
