50% is a failing Grade

We still need your help to restore full funding to the elementary instrumental programs!
Take the survey below. Call or write the SPPS board members today and attend school board meetings.

Let your voice be heard.

Here’s what needs to happen:

  • Keep the cuts from the kids, cut elsewhere.
  • Teachers need to be directly involved in any re-structuring of the instrumental music program
  • St. Paul needs to manage its instrument assets. People involved in the repair process, both within the District staff and vendors, should help plan this. We think money could be saved!
  • Saint Paul should look at running a summer beginner program through Community Educ, like Roseville, Mounds View, Maplewood, and West St. Paul do.
  • A moratorium on the closing of any more vocal or instrumental music programs.
