Chatham Schools Suffer $3 Million Shortfall


Springfield is not alone in its school funding worries.

 

The Ball-Chatham School District is also trying to make up a shortfall of around $3 million, which it blames on cutbacks in state funding.

 

Superintendent Carrie Van Alstine says that while the district has trimmed where it can… including cutting $1 million from its supplies budget… it has no choice but to find the bulk of savings by reducing head count.

 

A letter home to parents did not specify how many positions could be cut, but did say that class sizes are likely to increase.

 

Fees for sports and other activities and services could also go up.
