Okaaay. So I was out of the office yesterday and found a new revision request from the district in my inbox today regarding the music blog post and chart I posted on Wednesday.
Tuesday was when I had originally asked district administrators for chart information that detailed how many instrumental music teachers were in the schools this past school year, how many were budgeted for this coming year, and how many were restored. Straightforward, right? I thought I was in good shape because I was using information provided directly from the school district. I also asked district administrators to review my complete chart on Wednesday to clarify some issues, which they did. I revised Wednesday's blog post.
But it turns out some of the information initially provided by the district was still either wrong, outdated or changed since Tuesday. Below is the latest and most up-to-date music teacher staffing chart. (The main changes apply to International Prep and Riverside High.)
Finally, district spokeswoman Elena Cala asked me to state that Supt. Pamela Brown, at no time, was attempting to willfully misinform anyone regarding the extent of the instrumental music program restorations.
Here's the chart:
