The Sup, AD, and I will be meeting next week to hopefully fix the situation. One problem is this is most likely a beneficial move for boys athletics, but potentially devastating for the band in some sections.
The band program has a quarter century of concurrent sweepstakes.
The question is - are there ANY 4A division 2 schools that have BOTH a successful boys athletics and Band program when there is this kind of schedule conflict?
If anybody out there is dealing with this already, how does that effect your numbers and quality?
Side note - I'm eligible for retirement, but had hoped to stick it out 4 to 6 more years. If they don't fix this and I do retire, I would assume the applicant pool will shrink significantly once they ask about the schedule.
