Dist 186 Superintendent Unveils Proposal For 2013-14 School Budget

Springfield School Superintendent Walter Milton is laying out a proposal to slash 8 million dollars from next year’s school budget - a plan that includes a reduction of nearly 100 teaching positions.


Milton says not all of those positions are classroom teachers, some are team leaders who provide instruction and support to teachers in the classroom. But in other cases, Milton acknowledges the cuts will affect course offerings and classroom sizes. But he says the district and its staff are determined not to let the reductions affect the quality of education. The proposal is preliminary and must get approval from the school board – a process that could take months.


The reductions would not take effect until the 2013-14 school year.
