New Band Teacher For Keshequa Helping Kids Whose Instruments Were Stolen

GeneseeNow —  Monday, April 21, 2014

Ready to make music again.

We’ve been telling you about the plight of band students at Keshequa Central School. Their band teacher was arrested — charged with hocking everything from tubas to trumpets — for drug money.

Now the schools have re-hired a previous music teacher — kids are sharing instruments — some have been donated and insurance may help buy some others. And, good news, kids who got a zero in the class because they had no instrument will not have that bad grade stay on their record. After all, it wasn’t their fault.

The teacher who was arrested is in drug treament — then she will face a judge.
