|Music Programs -
Music at the elementary level is required for all first- through sixth-grade students. A certified instructor provides instruction for two 30-minute periods each week. These course offerings are part of the regular school day and receive regular reporting of student achievement through the grading process.
Instrumental music in band or orchestra is also provided at the fourth- through sixth-grade level as an elective pull-out program. Students study wind, percussion or string instruments in addition to their general music class requirements
Music at the secondary level is an elective subject within the confines of the school day. All seventh- through 12th-grade students are able to enroll in music course offerings, although prerequisites exist for some courses.
The music program is a curricular-based program that has established its criteria upon local norms, regional study and national standards. Regular assessment of student progress within the curriculum has taken place since 1992 with regular revision and refinement of the course of study and assessment method.
Students may use a music class to demonstrate proficiency in the state fine and performing arts standards, which will be required for graduation in 2006. The standards include: creative expression, aesthetic perception, historical and cultural context and applications to life.
