Parents angered by District 102 budget cuts
LA GRANGE PARK – With several dozen frustrated parents in the audience, the La Grange District 102 School Board went through with its recommendation for budget cuts that will affect students who require support outside of the general classroom.
Seeking to reduce a $3 million deficit, the board recommended $1 million in cuts for the district’s 2013-14 fiscal year budget that includes the elimination of eight full-time positions, which will save $400,000. Other cuts include changes to technology curriculum and decreases in professional development. Superintendent Warren Shillingburg plans to go forward with the recommended budget.
The proposed cuts were made public April 8, three days before the board considered them for the first time. Parents voiced their frustrations about the quick turnaround.
