The Atlanta Branch has a policy of paying the teacher (certificated, or
with a Prelim. pass) of a Branch Class $10 per class. A Branch Class is
defined as one where the Branch pays the rent for the classroom and
receives the fees from the students. At this time, since the fire at the
Garden Hills Rec. Center, there are no Branch Classes in Atlanta, so each
class has its own policy.
The Marietta class does not pay its teachers, but does give nice
Christmas presents. Our rent is very low, so the class was able to give
me a substantial grant to go to TAC Summer School in '98 for my Prelim.
The Branch also makes grants for teacher education, and for musicians to
improve their skills.
