It could be a long, difficult meeting of the Springfield School Board Monday night.
Board members are expected to vote on more than $7 million in proposed cuts from next year’s budget. If approved, the cuts would result in teacher layoffs, larger class sizes, and the closure and consolidation of two elementary schools. Most of the cuts have prompted a negative backlash.
The board meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:30 Monday at the Southeast High School auditorium.
