Proposed Dist. 186 Budget Cuts Met With Opposition from Teachers and School Board Members


The first group of proposed budget cuts to be debated by the Springfield school board has been met with strong objections from teachers… and even from school board members.

 

The board began debating part of the $8 million in cuts proposed last month by Superintendent Walter Milton.

 

Those cuts include elimination of some Teacher Instructional Leaders and mentors… positions designed to help classroom teachers improve their skills.

 

A number of teachers warned that educational quality will fall if those positions are cut.

 

Milton also proposed combining several alternative education programs… but board member Bill Looby says the $400,000 cut would be a step backwards from the goal of helping at-risk students succeed.
