School board finalizes music policy

by

WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU)  The Wausau Board of Education finalized its new policy on music selections for holiday concerts. Music teachers are required to work as a group to pick the songs that will be performed. The policy also allows for community input.

There was a controversy last fall over religious-themed music for holiday concerts. Some elementary schools postponed their concerts until the spring, and the Wausau-West Master Singers disbanded for a short time after their repertoire was questioned.

The new policy says that a district-wide community board will meet with music teachers once a year in case there are disagreements.
