All band students enrolled in this or other courses are expected to pay a $10.00 Band Instructional Fee per semester. This fee is mandated by the school board and the money is used to purchase equipment and supplies needed for the band program.
The band issues the following instruments free of charge for use in the band classes: bass clarinets, bassoons, tenor saxophones, baritone saxophones, French horns, baritones, tubas, and many percussion instruments. These instruments are assigned by the director based on needed instrumentation. Students who are assigned school instruments must fill out a county instrument contract, which states instrument type, model, and the condition of the instrument. Students who damage school-owned instruments in any way will be required to pay for the damages. Students who lose a school instrument will be required to replace the instrument.
