CACC Funding Restored, Some Athletic Fee Hikes Removed From District Budget Cut List


Springfield school superintendent Walter Milton has revised his multi-million dollar list of proposed budget cuts for next school year, restoring $200,000 in funding for students to attend the Capital Area Career Center and eliminating a proposal to charge a fee to low-income students for athletic participation.

 

Milton had originally proposed limiting the number of students who can attend vocational ed classes at CACC.  He also proposed a fee for athletic participation by students in the free or reduced-cost lunch programs.  That proposed fee would have been $25 for low-income high schoolers, and $20 at the middle schools. Both items have now been removed from Milton's proposed list. Proposed athletic fee hikes, raising them to $60-100 for other middle and high school students, remain part of Milton's plan.

 

The changes will mean an additional $225,000 in expenses that either must be covered by cuts elsewhere in the budget, or will be added into the district's sea of red ink.
