Re: Thoughts on a 8 hour rule change
I recently moved down to a 1A school that has not been competitive in recent memory. We did a couple of hours per day in August for summer band and did one night a week once school started for a month. I've come to realize that I'm loving the super small school because I CAN'T rehearse that much. With 70 kids in the entire high school, kids are pulled every direction with athletics, ag, FCCLA, BBQ teams, OAP, etc. so my hour and a half each week was becoming too much. Now we are finishing drill in class and will do a clinic or two outside of school hours. Maybe a small school environment helped my burnout. The majority of directors that I know who have taught 30+ years predominately at one school have been small school guys.
