Between low numbers, some kids who can't play their parts, and COVID, I have 19 kids that I would take to UIL.
I told my principal about how UIL doesn't require students to be eligible to participate in C&SR and and the district to allow the same. Apparently she took it to District Admin and it made it's way back around to the HS Director.
The HS Director is feeling like the school board won't allow failing students to participate unless we can justify how it would benefit the academic side of things.
Does anybody have ideas on how I can sell this?
This band could do its best at UIL in 15 years, but if UIL were today my only academically eligible players would be 2 flutes, 2 clarinets, 1 trumpet, 1 alto sax and 2 percussion.
