All band teachers who nominate students are expected to be in attendance during the audition day. Teachers will be assigned to room monitor roles to help throughout the audition process. Shifts will be assigned, and teachers will have an opportunity in the fall to request a specific block of time that will work best with each teacher’s schedule. Thank you in advance for your help in room monitoring responsibilities.
