Canton Central Residents Plan To Fight Funding Cuts
Parents at Canton Central School are trying to marshal their forces to fight proposed budget cuts they fear could gut programs even more than they already have been.
Under the governor's proposed budget, Canton stands to lose 30 positions to help make up for a $2.5 million budget gap. That's on top of 18 positions the district lost last year.
Elizabeth Gallup is one of those parents.
"I'm extremely worried," Gallup said in a live telephone interview.
"Who knows what the landscape's going to look like if these cuts continue," she added.
A meeting is being held at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the high school library to educate district residents about the problem and to plan ways to fight the cuts.
"We need hands and feet on the ground," she said. "We need people to spread the news."
