Burlington school board withdraws plan to cut sports

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

The Burlington school board has withdrawn a plan to cut sports and other co-curricular activities.

Despite winning approval from voters for a 5 percent increase in next year's budget, the school district is still projecting a deficit. One plan for closing that gap was to cut 15 percent from co-curriculars. But parents strongly criticized the move, and at a packed meeting Tuesday night, the school board directed the administration to find other areas to cut.
