Middle School Contemporary Music

My School would like to incorporate some contemporary music and vocal jazz into my middle school choral curriculum.  A guest conductor who has little experience with middle school voices would lead these selections once every semester.  I would like to set some parameters and would like some opinions on how to incorporate this genre and still keep with my foundations of good vocal production.  For instance should we use a rhythm section, microphones, straight tone, etc.  I am a classicaly trained singer who has a Masters in vocal performance and undergrad degree in music education.  The group is about 21 seventh and eighth grade singers.  I am at a small private school.
