California High School Lacrosse: State Budget Deficit To Force Saddleback Valley Unified School District To Eliminate Funding For High School Lacrosse; El Toro, Mission Viejo And Laguna Hills High School Lacrosse Among Programs To Be Impacted


missionviejolacrosseThe Saddleback Valley Unified School District will need to cut $10 million from next year’s budget and about 134 jobs – including 33 classroom teachers – in response to the state budget signed Friday.
At a school board meeting Tuesday, district officials outlined a cost-cutting plan that includes canceling the college-level International Baccalaureate program at two of the district’s four high schools, scaling back the popular class-size reduction program in the primary grades, and making bus transit available only in areas with a “high need.”
Also under the plan, funding for high school lacrosse and roller hockey would be wiped out completely, as would all high school assistant sports coaches and the last remaining certificated librarians in high schools.
