The growth and development of a strong music program likely takes longer to manifest than the tenure of a single administrator or elected official. It is crucial to decode how decisions for your school are made, what parties are making choices that affect your program, and how you can illicit desired outcomes. Decision-makers are anyone with authority over resources—funding, staffing, time, publicity, or facilities. They can include counselors, assistant principals and those that build the master schedule, principals, central office staff, school board members, or other influential persons in your local community. What is being done in your community to advance the stature of music education in the eyes of the decision-maker?
