Music & Arts Budget Cutting in the 728 District

Elk River MN, – Last evening the District 728 School Board heard from the students and parents of the Music studies programs throughout the 728 District. They heard how the students achieve more with music no matter what their goals are. They heard why we need to keep funding for Band and Choir programs and how they benefit the entire district. Through investment in Music programs the achievement levels grow within the schools and that comes back to pay dividends in the future.

The School Board will take some time to decide on the next budget. but yesterday they listened, A the next meeting they will actually discuss what they heard and we can help them to help us and the future that come from our kids learning Music in the school from Teachers they know and trust. Now all we can do is wait to see if the School Board listened when we see the decisions they make with the District budget.
