Dist. 186 Subdistrict 1 Candidates Agree More Cuts Coming


The candidates competing in Springfield School Board Subdistrict 1 agree that more cuts are coming... and that they need to be kept as far away from the classroom as possible.

 

Lisa Funderburg and Teresa Jones met in a live joint appearance on 970 WMAY's "Jim Leach Show" (mp3 download).

 

Funderburg says she wants the board to reconsider some of the cuts she voted for earlier this year, but which a majority of the board rejected.

 

Those include eliminating "coaching" positions where teachers work with other teachers to improve their skills.

 

Funderburg also wants to see reductions in headcount at the district's central office, in areas like human resources and communications.

 

Jones says she may ask top administrators to take a pay cut... in order to set an example from the top down.

 

The school board elections are April 9th.
