School Board Rejects Proposed Cut During Packed Meeting

The Springfield school board has rejected one of the largest cuts proposed by Superintendent Walter Milton as he seeks to trim more than 4 million dollars from next year’s budget.


Milton wanted to eliminate the administrative intern positions in the city’s middle and high schools, returning those staffers to teaching positions and saving an estimated 630-thousand dollars. But after complaints from a packed house at Monday’s school board meeting, the board voted 4-3 against cutting those positions.


That prompted a warning from board president Bill Looby, who says unless the board finds other, equivalent places to cut, the district will face even more painful and unavoidable reductions in just a couple of years.
