From Holly Dunn

Poughkeepsie High School is going to need a music replacement from approximately April 28 until the end of the school year.  The schedule will consist of 3 Music In Our Lives classes, a small Jazz Combo, and one period of rotating lessons per day.  The pay is $125.00 per day.
I was wondering if you could put this on the OCMEA website or share this with the OCMEA membership in case there are any music substitutes in Orange County who are going to be available at this time?  Anyone interested in this leave replacement should contact me and I’ll forward my principal any contact info.  Thanks!
