RBHS board cuts music teacher to half time despite protest

Despite the pleas of orchestra students and parents the Riverside-Brookfield High School District 208 Board of Education voted unanimously March 9 to reduce music teacher Matthew Loeb’s job to part-time status next year. Students and parents fear that this will cause Loeb to look for a full-time job elsewhere.

Loeb, who is in his first year at RBHS, has made a big impression. At the Feb. 23 school board meeting 10 people, including three students, made public comments imploring the school board to retain Loeb as a full-time music teacher. 

During the March 9 school board meeting, more letters in support of Loeb were read during the public comment portion of the meeting, and the executive board of the RBHS Orchestra submitted a video in which 11 students lavished praise upon Loeb and asked the board to retain him full time.
