The loss of instruments from the devastating fires in Otis and other circumstances related to online learning are still being assessed. $10,000 fund for new instrument purchases as needed.
Every instrument MII purchases is registered in the school Instrument Library. Students check them out and are responsible for damage and loss. As instruments circulate through the system, cleaning and repairs are provided by a retired district music teacher. Maintenance ensures quality!
Our music teachers tested this online learning environment last Spring. They were impressed with the unrivaled repertoire library and game-changing practice tools that provide the means for tracking student progress while giving immediate feedback.
