When the Random Lake School District cut high school course offerings last fall to save money, teachers and parents stepped in to help fill the gaps.
The district was faced with getting about $350,000 less in state aid, so it eliminated three high school teaching positions, one middle school teaching position and seven extracurricular activities, according to Joe Gassert, who?s been the district administrator for 10 years.
?The reduction in aid was a combination of declining enrollment and the smaller amount of money the state gave all school districts,? Gassert said.
