Stafford’s longer school days to end in May

Stafford County students will be able to sleep in a little longer after the second week in May.

Stafford Superintendent David Sawyer recently announced that May 14 would be the last extended school day.

In February, the School Board voted for longer school days to make up for missed time during this year’s record snowfall. School has started 10 minutes earlier and ended 10 minutes later since March 8.

    How about an article about why the School Board is still looking to make cuts to positions which will affect instructional programs (these are instructional salary positions) when Dr. Sawyer presented them with a budget proposal last Friday that included NO cuts to current positions, ADDED back in some classroom positions, AND provided a raise for all employees? Why are they still considering cuts?
