Adoption Date: 7/19/1994, Revised: 6/20/2000; 1/5/16


The Board endorses the participation of district students in the District’s music program. The District may provide certain musical instruments for student use.

All instrumental music students shall be expected to own or rent their instrument--particularly the common and less expensive instruments (flute, clarinet, trumpet, saxophone etc.). Students will not be required to own or rent the less common and more expensive instruments (e.g. oboe, bassoon, tuba, French horn, trombone, baritone horn, tenor and baritone saxophones, bass trombone and percussion). School-owned instruments in this classification will be disbursed upon decisions by the instrumental music staff. Decisions will be dependent upon the individual student's talent and merit and the need for a balanced instrumentation at each grade level.

Students and parents/guardians will assume responsibility for proper care of school-owned instruments and will pay for damages to same.

The District will only transport in its vehicles those instruments meeting certain safety standards as indicated in the New York State Department of Transportation Regulations.

Administrative regulations shall be developed by the Superintendent or his/her designee.
