The prestigious San Dieguito School district allowed its once lauded music program to languish, then be eliminated, insisting there was not interest in music among the student body.. For several years, parents tried in vain to convince the district to change the policy. Lisa guided a public relations program to put pressure on the district, forming the organization FAME with a group of parents and widely respected music educator, Libby Scott. In May 1999 the school board allowed Libby and Lisa to do a demonstration music project that would give kids the option of using a marching band class for PE credit. In September, the swing marching band Byrds of Prey openned for business with the help of the Boys & Girls which provided the facilities for over 300 students. It ran successfully for a year when the district began its own music program.
