After years of seeing the numbers languishing, but not the quality of the high school marching band, the Whitnall School Board is on the verge of trying to build up the band again.
A committee may be formed to take a holistic look at the entire music program with an eye to enabling the marching band to expand.
The band was 120 strong at its peak in 2004 when the board made the band an extracurricular activity. Numbers dwindled to just 40 members this past year.
Some officials as well as the Whitnall Band Boosters, a group made up of parents, would like the band to become a mix of curricular and extracurricular. That way, students could get academic credit and still have a full marching schedule.
School Board member Bernard Shaw cautioned the board not to lose sight of the priorities it has already set elsewhere in the educational program.
