Lopez: Talk Of Closing High School Could Trigger Backlash -- Or Boost Support For New Revenues


A Springfield school board member admits his proposal to look at eliminating one of the city’s high schools won’t make him popular around town. 

 

But Adam Lopez says the looming prospects of millions more in budget cuts requires looking at everything, especially high school expenses.  Lopez says closing one high school… and moving those students to the other two… would reduce expenses, although he’s not sure by how much.  District 186 is also considering reducing the high school day from seven periods back to six. 

 

Lopez says the proposed cuts may help convince the public that it’s time for new revenues for Springfield schools.
