A Jkher Production
You are the principal of a local private middle school. Three eighth grade members of the school band, John Anderson, George Bates, and Paul Curtis, have formed a trio jazz band. John plays guitar, George is lead vocals and Paul plays saxophone. Last night was the annual band and choral concert at the school. The jazz trio played two pieces between set changes.
Any music performed at school events or concerts must be from an approved list. The trio selected two pieces from the approved list and had practiced the same. The concert program indicated the pre-approved selections. The trio had privately practiced another piece. John, George and Paul performed the first number as planned. For the second number the boys strayed from the program and played a very risque and unapproved number. The trio did a great job and their fellow students were cheering.

Most parents who attended the concert and the school's Board of Trustees were less than pleased. Several parents have already complained to the school about the music and the Chair of the Board of Trustees has already called this morning demanding that the issue be addressed.
You could choose to ignore the matter or issue a punishment. You have broad discretion as far as possible punishments including up to four licks with a paddle or out of school suspension for up to five days.
How do you address the issue?
