Music Matters, a grassroots advocacy group that supports and campaigns for outstanding programs for band, choir, and orchestra in Albemarle County Schools, created this petition. To receive updates on Music Matters' activities, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We, the undersigned, believe that music provides significant contributions to children’s intellectual development and is essential for a well-rounded education.
The music programs at Albemarle County’s Henley Middle School and Western Albemarle High School are at a critical crossroad.
With changes in several key positions of leadership at both schools, we call for action in providing appropriate staffing, scheduling, and offerings to encourage and ensure outstanding programs of excellence in band, choir, and orchestra, and to grow a vibrant performing arts culture for our children’s academic community.
