Parents fighting for Redwood City music program

February 17, 2010 7:31:22 AM PST
Parents of Redwood City schools plan to launch a fundraising campaign this week to try to save the music program.

The school district needs to trim next year's budget by up to $13 million. It is considering cutting all four music teachers who would have already been cut last year, if it were not for one-time federal stimulus help.

Parents will meet Wednesday to come up with fundraising strategies including a benefit concert or partnering with businesses to hold fundraising nights.
