The Valedictorian and Salutatorian of the Randolph High School class of 2011 were both active members of the Randolph High School Band.

Moving Forward
Moving Forward .6 reduction in music elective offerings at RHS

Complete elimination of the small group lesson program at RCMS

50% increase in general music classes = significant decrease in instrumental music lessons at the elementary level

Inconsistency of program offerings at each elementary school
Growth: 2008-2012
Loss of programming and challenges due to growth
Moving Forward We can, and we must, do better than what we are currently offering.
Growth and success has put us at a breaking point. In order to sustain the current curriculum, additional resources are necessary.
Additional music faculty are needed to meet our current program needs; add 1.0 FTE for 2012-2013
We have a really great challenge and the RPS Music Department is 100% committed to building a world class music curriculum. The RPS Music Department has experienced incredible growth and success over the last five years
Growth and success creates opportunity and challenge
Success would not have been possible without the support of administration, school committee and the entire Randolph community THANK YOU!
