Although the Lassiter High School District is known as an affluent area, there are, at any given time, members of the band community whose family members have lost jobs or loved ones and are struggling to make ends meet. As a result of these financial hardships, there are always a few families that cannot meet the full financial burden of band membership. The result of this is either a high student account balance with undue stress, or declining participation in the band due to financial hardship.
In order to address this issue, the LBBA offers the Financial Assistance for Needy Students (FANS) Fund. This fund will be set up to specifically address those situations where members cannot meet the full financial obligations of band membership.
We ask that our fellow Band Families, Alumni, and Friends of the band consider donating any amount possible to make the rewards of Lassiter Band Membership available for all.
