KCRA-TV: High School Sports Eliminated In Fairfield


California’s budget crisis has hit home in Fairfield, where high school football, basketball, baseball and other team sportsĀ are set for elimination this fall.

The Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District voted last February to cancel all high school sports — along with band, theater and school clubs to help offset a $6.5 million deficit.

The district already has made about $42 million in cuts, according to Jacki Cottingim-Dias, superintendent for the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District.

She told KCRA 3 the only way to save the after-school programs would beĀ more concessions from employees and additional donations from parents and people in the community.
