More than $5 million in cuts could be coming to Springfield School District 186.
That’s above the estimated $4.7 million budget shortfall expected for next year’s school year.
The suggested cuts include $700,000 in special education, cuts in teaching positions across the district and even $1.4 million in technology could be on the cutting board.
The proposed cuts come as teachers prepare to enter a new round of negotiations on raises.
The State Journal-Register reports discussions on the proposed cuts will take place over the next few months.
