High School Program of Studies Update Instrumental Music

Release Date: 10/5/2010 10:27:46 AM

Carroll County Public Schools thanks the community for their response to the request for feedback on the proposed revisions to the High School Program of Studies. 
     
One of the recommended changes in the proposed Program of Studies was to add an additional one-half credit option for students wishing to take Band I, Concert Band, Honors Symphonic Band, Honors Wind Ensemble, Honors Jazz Ensemble, Orchestra, and Honors Orchestra.  The one-half credit would be offered in addition to the current full credit option.  This option was proposed to allow students who could not otherwise schedule a full credit the option of these courses, the one-half credit option.
     
This proposal is being withdrawn due to some confusion over the intent of the proposal.  Therefore, it will not appear as a recommended revision to the Program of Studies at the Board meeting on October 13, 2010.
     
Carroll County Public Schools appreciates all input received on this topic.
