District 186 Scales Back Budget Cutting Plan


Springfield’s school superintendent now says it would be impossible to implement his original plan for $8 million in budget cuts without causing serious disruption to the school district. 

 

So Superintendent Walter Milton has offered a revised plan that cuts less than $7 million.  But the plan still includes unpopular reductions in the number of teachers and other staff… and still calls for closing two elementary schools. 

 

The school board hopes to adopt a budget cutting plan next month. District officials have talked about selling bonds to raise revenue that would close the funding gap.
