We hope to offer the instrumental program and the Director of Music believes we can continue to offer the program but the scheduling of available personnel will dictate the future of the program. Schedule challenges include the reduction of music personnel K-12 and also the reduction of other elementary specialists. There will be less flexibility in assigning staff across the facilities and also the travel time may have a negative impact. </li></ul>
