NORTH SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The North Syracuse Central Schools Board of Education tried to find ways to avoid cutting after-school activities, preparing for the upcoming school year.
It was one of the few school districts to watch it's budget get defeated last May. As part of the process, the district had to cut 16-percent of its co-curricular programs.
Specific cuts were proposed tonight, and most were tabled. Some groups and clubs may turn to fundraisers to keep their organizations afloat. It could help some of them get restored.
Administrators want people to know they are doing what they can.
"It's been a very difficult budget process that the school district is coming off of. And I meant what I said earlier in terms of the number of people in the community, parent groups, booster organizations, volunteers have really risen to show that they care about the students in this community," said Interim Superintendent Annette Speach.
Speach says she is open to sitting down with directors and coaches and discussing ideas.
