Springfield School Board Approves $5 Million In Cuts


Dozens of teaching positions and other jobs will be slashed in Springfield public schools next year, as the school board adopts more than $5 million in cuts in its ongoing effort to balance its books. 

 

Many of those cuts are at the high school level, where changes in teaching schedules will allow the same number of courses with fewer instructors.  But the board also approved cutting middle and elementary school positions, librarian jobs, and multiple special education staffers. 

 

And even those cuts may not be enough, depending on the outcome of state budget negotiations and upcoming talks on a new teachers contract for District 186.
