Parent & Booster Involvement

Many scholastic music programs rely on strong parent and booster networks in order to function effectively. Programs of all shapes and sizes benefit from additional support, and parents and boosters can often assist music programs by supporting administrative efforts, volunteering at events, and in a variety of other ways. Achievement in this category demonstrates a commitment to developing an engaged and supportive network of volunteers for your organization.
