We are requesting a change to the DoDEA Administrator's Manual dtd October 2007, Section 53.2, paragraph 188.8.131.52 that states "Bands and/or chorus. Service may be provided to transport the school band and/or chorus for performances in DoDEA schools, concerts for U.S. or host nation audiences (DoDDS only), or for participation in local festivals. Transportation of music groups to perform at "away" games of interscholastic athletic events is not authorized."

Carolyn Kitzman, United States12 months ago Comments: As a former band parent, I can see how my children and grandchildren have and are benefiting from being in high school band. They and many others have gone on in their lives to be in bands and orchestras in churches and other venues. Music is part of our lives, listen to football games with the band encouraging the team and keeping the morale of the crowd up. The band is as important as the football team. Please keep encouraging the band by restoring funding for them.
