School district to eliminate 1 position due to budget constraints

After “shaking out” the cuts and retirements taking place in the Springfield School District for the upcoming year, the school district has a singular notification to make regarding a reduction in force (RIF) for the equivalent of one school staff position, according to Superintendent Zach McLaughlin.    


  1. RIF happens at an elem. school again...? Why not HS or front office? Elem Educ. provides the base of learning for an entire schooling career and creates a foundation for life in general.. People complain of failing schools so what do we do? Cut out staffing in the places staffing is needed most, with the younger kids. The district has excellent teachers! Tom Brady wouldn't succeed without an appropriate supporting cast!

  2. The best cut should be Zach Mclaughlin.

  3. How about the AD that would be a great cut!

    1. Yes ! He needs to go and Zach along with him.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
