Springfield School Board Approves $5.4 Million in Cuts; Another $1 Million In Proposed Reductions Are Rejected


The Springfield School Board has voted to cut $5.4 million from next year's District 186 budget, including the closure of two North End elementary schools and the reduction of dozens of teaching positions.  But the board did reject nearly $1 million in additional cuts, including middle school teaching positions and elementary school librarians.  A divided board also voted to preserve funding for post-secondary coaches, who counsel students on college options, and to retain the Illinois Math and Science Academy after-school program. 

 

[As of 9:30pm, the board was still considering a separate list of proposed cuts put forward by a citizens committee, including the possible closure of the Capital College Preparatory Academy.]
