FAIRFIELD, Calif. (KGO) — When students in Fairfield start school in the fall, there’s a good chance they won’t have any sports or after school programs. The school board voted to cut them, but Thursday night students and parents are putting up a fight.
It was a packed house at the district headquarters and it was quite emotional. Parents and students say they can’t even bear the thought of going to a school that offers no extra-curricular activities.
“I want to know what we can do, as a community to get a plan in action to save our sports,” said a parent.
Parents came pleading, and so did students. Student athletes from Fairfield, Armijo and Rodriguez High say they won’t know what to do if the school district carries out its plan to eliminate sports.
