Facing Budget Deficit, Springfield School Officials Seek Suggestions For Balancing The Books

Springfield Public Schools

     The Springfield Public Schools face a $6.8 million deficit in next year’s budget.

       Officials are asking the public for help by listing school programs and services they consider most important and to suggest potential measures to reduce the deficit. 

      There is a public hearing at 5:30 p.m. today in the library at Central High School.  A survey is posted on the school department’s website through this Friday.  

     WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Springfield Superintendent of Schools Dan Warwick.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
