Nicholas Sutton started this petition to Shakopee High School Band Program

This year, Shakopee High School is introducing a brand new block schedule. This means that each class is about 90 minutes long and you only have 4 classes per day. This makes it difficult for students to get the classes that are important to them. Jose is one of the students who was negatively affected by this new block.

Jose auditioned to become a member of the Wind Ensemble and was allowed into the band. He believed everything was ok until schedule pickup and the open house came around. When Jose got his schedule, he noticed that Wind Ensemble was not on there. Confused, he went to speak with a counselor, but at the end of the day, a resolution to his problem was not found for him.

Remaining optimistic, Jose believed that it was going to be ok because he could still join the Jazz Band. Junior year, Jose auditioned for Jazz the very first time with the baritone saxophone and made Jazz I without any prior experience. Jazz Band is something that is very close to Jose's heart. Unfortunately, we learned that anyone besides the rhythm section is required to be in a school band to be in the jazz band. We were told that there are no exceptions to this rule.

We think Jose deserves an exception and this petition is to try and make that exception exist!
