Chadron Public Schools Expands Middle School Music Position


The Chadron School Board has approved expanding a vacant part-time middle school vocal music position into a fulltime position that also includes elementary music, and hiring Kassyopea Schrader to fill the job. She was a para-educator this past school year.

The expanded music position was the top recommendation of a community advisory group and board President Tom Menke says the district administration deserves a lot of credit for making it a reality while spending less money than last year.

High school vocal music teacher Wendy Mahr told the board she’s excited about Schrader’s expanded role and is already talking with her about how the two of them can improve the music program at all grades.
