WACO (March 21, 2013)--The Waco ISD School Board met Thursday night to discuss the future of the Fine Arts Department at many area schools.
Orchestra programs at G.W. Carver, Cesar Chavez, Indian Spring and University High Schools have been canceled.
The Fine Arts Department spreads itself financially thin, said a Waco ISD spokesperson.
Tennyson Middle and Waco High School have promising numbers that have grown and are expected to increase even more, said the spokesperson.
The school board also discussed a proposal to increase meal prices. Board members decided to finish that discussion at next weeks meeting on Thursday, March 28.
