The agenda is extremely broad which covers like 15 categories for you to choose from which mainly focuses on safety and health. So this includes cleaning & sanitization, instrument repair, new instruments, bell covers, facility improvement, instructional support, additional staff or clinicians along with portables to make up for last year which means 2 years of beginner band students, to begin a new program like a jazz or mariachi program, etc... and the list goes on. This nothing is impossible and everything out of this world but with a plan. Please keep in mind, there are 2 important themes: |
a. Keeping the kiddos safe and healthy
b. How to make up for this lost year and move forward.
