District 186 dealing with 5-million in cuts


Springfield - District 186 is discussing more than 5-million dollars in cuts for the district.


Board members debated over cutting elementary school librarians to reduce spending on students with special needs.


"Invest in 186," is a group pushing for a property tax increase. They say, the tax would go directly to supporting education.


The group says, "additional funds would prove a game changer for a district whose finances have forced us into a conversation about doing the least harm rather than the most good."
