Band Boosters want to tap into Athletic Booster funds

Rose Kienzle spoke on behalf of the Band Boosters to members of the Carrollton Exempted Village School District Board of Education last week.

Kienzle said the group has been raising money for several years to buy new band uniforms and made the down payment of $17,000. The uniforms have been ordered and delivery is expected in September.

Through continued fundraisers and working the gate at the county fair, the group has about $41,000 in anticipated revenues to pay on the remaining bill of $56,500.  That leaves a shortfall of $15,500.

“We have taken care of 73% of the cost for new uniforms. We don’t receive money from the board.  We are not part of the athletic booster club or any of the money they raise, since band is not a sport,” stated Kienzle.

Kienzle gave examples from other school districts regarding the funding for band, noting other districts receive money from the school budget.

The board was asked to consider making the band be part of the athletic fund.

Superintendent Dr. Dave Quattrochi pointed out the school board does pay for the busing of students at away events.
