Some CCS Parents Not Happy With Proposed Budget Cuts
Columbus City Schools parents are getting a chance to talk about the district's proposed budget cuts.
Dozens of parents met with district officials last night at Northland High School to discuss the proposed cuts to staff members, programs and other expenses. Many parents oppose cuts that affect classroom learning. The district projects a deficit of 224 million dollars over five years. The district is proposing cuts to more than 160 staff members, programs, partnerships, supplies, and more. Three more public budget meetings are planned this week, including tonight at Marion-Franklin High School, Wednesday night at the Columbus Africentric School, Thursday at Starling Pre K-8 STEM school on Central Avenue. The meetings are scheduled from 6-8 p.m.
