The PACT School Board provides funds to purchase certain musical instruments to be used by students enrolled in instrumental music courses at PACT Charter School. These instruments are necessary for the proper instrumentation of our school band. They are often expensive, and parents or students do not frequently purchase many. Available instruments will be limited to budgetary constraints and priorities.

Parents and students interested in renting an instrument for a semester or the school year will be required to pay the following fees (which may be adjusted annually based on costs). The same fees apply whether the student will be using the instrument for one semester or the entire year.

  • Students who use a school-owned band instrument exclusively (at school and home) will be assessed a non-refundable fee of $50 to be paid by the end of the second week of the semester in which the instrument will be used.
  • Students who use a school-owned band instrument (including percussion) that remains at school for classroom use only will be assessed a non-refundable preventative maintenance fee of $25 to be paid by the end of the second week of the semester in which the instrument will be used.

 

Rationale

Using school-owned instruments is a privilege. Fees help to partially offset the costs of instrument purchase and normal maintenance. 

 

Responsibility/Liability

In renting an instrument from the school, the student and parent/guardian accept responsibility/liability for the instrument, including maintaining the instrument in good condition except for normal wear. The instrument may be recalled at any time by the instrumental music instructor for non-payment of the fee or if the instrument is not being effectively utilized or properly maintained. If an instrument is damaged, the parent/guardian will be responsible for all repairs beyond the student’s rental fee, up to and including full replacement.

With the instrumental music instructor’s permission, the instrument may be used, without an additional fee, during the summer following the rental period.

Notes:

  • The same conditions apply, and a new agreement must be signed.
  • There is no reduction in the fee if the instrument is not used during the summer.
