More than 50 parents and students met with Bibb County school officials Monday to discuss the job status of Central High band director Terrell Johnson.
They gathered at the Bibb County Board of Education in a private meeting with Superintendent Romain Dallemand to express their concern.
Regina Baker, the boosters president at Central High, said Johnson had been "pulled from the classroom."
"It's taking away from (the childrens') learning process and we don't think it's fair," said Baker.
Students said they became suspicious when their band routine was interrupted and canceled.
A letter from Principal Efrem Yarber last week told parents that band camp was canceled on one day's notice, "due to unforeseen circumstances."
They reached out to the school board to express their support for their teacher, who they say was one of the best at the school.
"Mr. Johnson means everything to me," says Central High junior Katherine Rugen. "He's the reason I have courage to speak in front of people. He's the reason I have courage to perform."
After the private meeting,students and parents said Dallemand would not explain Johnson's status.
School spokesman Donald Porter said they would not release any further details, calling it an "ongoing personnel issue."
Central High School's website is currently showing band practices on its schedule, but it's unclear whether they will be cancelled as well. Bibb County Schools has no comment other than to say the matter is still ongoing.
