Students are evaluated by their in-class and out-of-class preparation. During August, September, and October, class content requires participation in marching band, both parade and field. After marching season, students will concentrate on concert preparation. Students enrolled are required to attend out-of-school functions, such as concerts, parades, field trips, and extra rehearsals/sectionals as part of their grade in the course.
