Sullivan School District facing budget cuts



SULLIVAN -- Another Central Illinois School District is forced to make hundreds of thousands in budget cuts.

The Sullivan School District is proposing $650,000 in cuts for next school year.  

Employees who could be getting pink slips include ten coaches, four elementary playground monitors, 13 teacher aides and two part-time teachers.

Illinois State Board of Education spokesperson Mary Fergus said the state has cut public education funds by $900 million since 2009.

"[The school districts] are getting cut at the state level, and now they're looking toward a new school year where federal funds will be cut by at least five percent," Fergus said.

The school board will make a final vote on these cuts Monday.  However the district said those employees facing cuts have already been notified.
