Sports Among Potential Cuts in Dist. 186 Budget


Springfield school board members are still trying to tweak a long list of proposed budget cuts, as they look for millions of dollars in savings ahead of a planned vote early next month.

 

Board member Bill Looby suggested Tuesday that the district consider deeper cuts in sports programs… and perhaps to apply some of that savings to alternative education programs that are also facing deep cuts.

 

Looby says sports and extracurriculars have to take a back seat to basic education of students.

 

But board member Judy Johnson says sometimes sports is the only way to motivate young people to take the rest of their studies seriously.
