A couple years after Joel Smales heard Ithaca College's Steel Band, he bought a steel pan of his own to play along with Binghamton High School's Jazz Ensemble."Everybody loved it," said Smales, a music teacher at the school. "I got some old drums, and from there, it kind of blossomed and took off."

The district is creating a Family Engagement Task Force and would like your input. We realize that the only way to improve engagement, communication and collaboration is to listen and learn from our families as to what we can do better to support them. The Task Force will meet three times this year and anticipate the first meeting to be held in February 2018. We would like some input on the location and times that work best for families. We will also use this information as we plan future events. We appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey and hope you are interested and able to join us. Thank you.
