PARTNERSHIP WITH THE SANTA FE PUBLIC SCHOOLS
The following information primarily affects middle and high school SFYSA students enrolled in the Santa Fe Public Schools
The Santa Fe Public Schools (SFPS) Music Department and the Santa Fe Youth Symphony Association (SFYSA) seek to strengthen a long-standing co-enrollment policy for middle and high school SFYSA/SFPS students. The policy endeavors to maintain consistent yearlong enrollment in the students’ corresponding school-based program.
Since 1998 SFYSA has provided after-school strings education in SFPS sites through its Elementary Strings program. Most recently, SFYSA has served five schools: Acequia Madre, Atalaya, Cesar Chavez, Carlos Gilbert, and El Camino Real Academy (formerly Agua Fria Elementary).
SFYSA holds weekly rehearsals at different SFPS facilities. The partnership allows for visibility and promotion of SFYSA programs in SFPS classrooms and concerts for increased recruiting opportunities.
How does this affect current students?
