Springfield schools stave off deep cuts with decisive win
Springfield Local School’s all-out, last ditch levy campaign prevailed Tuesday, helping the district to stave off deep program cuts. Saved are athletics, extracurricular activities, and clubs. Kindergarten remains full day, and the arts, music, and physical education won’t be slashed at the elementary level. “This is a big win for everyone in this room,” Superintendent Michael O’Shea said to a cheering crowd at the Springfield district administration building. “But you all know that this is a huge win for our community.”
