Goshen schools face budget cuts

Hundreds of Goshen children may have to find another way to school this fall.

A circuit breaker tax cap forced the study transportation group to investigate traveling options for the 2013 and 2014 school year.

Some options include eliminating bus stop times, expanding walk zones for several schools and utilizing hubs.

In addition, athletics, band and other school organizations will now have to raise and pay 100 percent for any field trips or after school events.

"We need to make sure that we try to operate within our means and our means have just been cut,” said Assistant Superintendent Robert Evans. “You're household budget is slashed in half, you have to make some kind of cut. So, we're forced to do that."

The school board is still brain-storming other alternatives before the schools start in the fall.
