Henkels position has been paid for the past three years by donations from a community group called Community Helping Instrumental Music Education. But with that funding commitment ending after this school year, district Superintendent Larry Brown and the administrative team are recommending that the fourth band instructor position between the Monroe High and Middle schools be eliminated in next years budget.
MONROE - Hold off on the requiem for the district's fourth band instructor position - at least for now.Despite a recommendation from Superintendent Larry Brown and the district administrative team not to add the position into the 2009-2010 budget, the school board has left the door open for more discussion on the matter and possibly an encore performance for the fourth instructor.
