Your job is to teach band.
Your job is to make being in band and being the band hall the best possible experience that it can be, every day. That was the entire focus of this summer's SEL blitz that our admins have forgotten due to all this pressure.
Do YOUR job. Let the admin do their job. Keep those kids engaged by NOT forcing more disengaging stuff down their throat. Play and learn about music.
If you want to worry about the narrative, or the learning loss, or the other stuff - get on your campus leadership team or seek an admin certificate. That's THEIR job, not yours.
