Action Needed in Brevard

Dear Supporter of the Arts:
I am emailing you to alert you to a preliminary list of budget cuts just announced by the Brevard County School Board. Among the proposed cuts of special concern to me is the elimination of music and art instructors in every elementary school throughout the county… 57 music instructors and 55 art instructors.

Everyone should be aware of these proposals and given an opportunity to inform the school board and the superintendent of the importance of arts education as a critical element in the education of the whole child. We can act to show support for arts education for our children:

Share this information with other supporters of the arts. Parents and grandparents, especially, have tremendous influence on the elected school board.
