Dist. 186 Votes to Keep Lawrence Running, For Score Board and New Athletic Handbook


As part of its new budget, the Springfield School Board has approved changes that will allow high school diploma and GED programs to continue at Lawrence Education Center.

 

Those programs were threatened by a loss of grant dollars, but the district says it can find the resources by merging staff and funds at Lawrence and the Springfield Learning Academy, which shares space in the same building.

 

The board also approved a proposal to install new scoreboards at Memorial Stadium and other athletic fields, to be paid for largely with advertising dollars.

 

And it signed off on a new athletic handbook, despite controversy over its inclusion of tutors, paid positions that are similar to some that were eliminated in budget cuts earlier this year.
