In an effort to trim more from the Springfield School Budget, teachers could be asked to take on one extra period a day.
Interim Superintendent Bob Lemming tells the State Journal-Register that the move could save the school district more than $1 million, from an already estimated $6 million that needs to be cut from the upcoming budget.
The move could eliminate a collaboration period teachers have to work on things like new common core standards and move them to spend more times with students.
The Springfield School Board could take up the measure later this month.
Meanwhile, members of the school board will be meeting with candidates to take on the superintendent job behind closed doors this weekend with planed public session with the final two or three candidates next week.
