Discrimination, Inequality and Racism in the Wildcat Band

Over the past year, we as a Band staff have been made aware of issues within the program that could have been handled differently and/or that we as directors were unaware of and we want to be on the forefront of change not only in our program but on the campus. We are proud to offer a comprehensive Band program that is representative of all students at LHHS and want to make sure that we are staying true to that mission.

We have teamed with RISD’s Directors of Prevention Programming and Equity, Diversity and Inclusion to provide training for our Band Directors and a select group of Student Leaders in hopes that we can have meaningful conversations and impactful change in the program.

The following Google form can be used for any student to share their experience in the Band program. You can choose to share this anonymously, with a Student Leader, Band Director or another individual on our campus.

The form can be found here: https://forms.gle/2WWCyPe6X8keZ1pT7

Please participate if you feel that you have information that can help the program improve!
