South Seven Conference Team Could Cut All Sports Next School Year

A member of the South Seven Conference may not have sports next year.

The Cahokia School Board 18 board agreed Monday night to the possible cuts that would do away with all extracuricular activities next year.  The cuts would also target 52 teachers, administrators, and about two dozen noncertified workers.  The athletic director and coaches positions would all be eliminated.  

Superintendent Art Ryan says a final decision in the 4,000-student district won't come until the state signs off on a budget.   Ryan says the state is $1.2 million behind in payments to the district, and failing to make cuts would mean the district would run out of money in a year.   He adds that board needed to address the cuts Monday to legally give affected employees a 45-day notice.
