There was tremendous outcry from the community this week reacting to the Fairfield-Suisun School District’s proposal to discontinue all extracurricular activities including sports and music.
Once again our school district draws media attention in an unfavorable way, potentially becoming the only district in California to cancel its sports program. The district has been struggling with this possibility for the last few years. Thanks to community support efforts like the Save Our Athletic Programs, which helped to raise enough money to continue some of the sports programs.
I understanding the statewide budget crisis, however there must be other alternatives that would be less devastating to the community.
