Following a meeting with the School District's deputy superintendent, three of the seven district region offices have agreed to hold music festivals this year.
But there's no word on what the remaining four will do.
The region music festivals faced an uncertain future this year after the district's central office, which had coordinated the event, shifted responsibility to each region office. Some 12,000 to 15,000 students participate in the festivals each year.
After a meeting last week, the Northeast, Northwest and high school region offices have committed to holding the festivals, said Deputy Superintendent Jeanette Brewer. The others have been asked to make a decision by Oct. 21, she said, noting that the concerns among the holdout regions were funding and staffing for the event.
