DOTHAN, Ala (WDHN) — Dothan City Board of Education has approved a $274,042.25 bid to buy over 100 band instruments and equipment for three schools.

The new instruments and equipment will include tubas, bassoons, trumpets, speakers, subwoofers, and much more.

The equipment will be used for band and music classes at Dothan High School, Carver 9th Grade Academy, and Dothan Preparatory Academy.

I’m so excited that the board has made it possible for our students to have new equipment and I know the students are excited as well. This is a huge step forward in ensuring that the instrumental music programs in Dothan City Schools will continue to thrive for years to come

Adrian P. Broughton II, Associate Director of Bands for Dothan City Schools

The funds were secured through the Fiscal Year 2023 American Rescue Plan (ARP) ESSER.
