The Springfield school board has authorized layoff notices for nearly three-dozen school district employees, including 11 teachers.
But that may not solve the district’s fiscal crisis.
Board members say they are being told that state education funding could be dramatically slashed in the budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1st.
That could blow another multi-million dollar hole in the District 186 budget.
Interim superintendent Bob Hill says if that happens, the only option may be to end school two weeks early next year and impose an unpaid furlough on every district employee.
