School Resource Centers Face Budget Cuts
Family resource and youth service centers in schools are worried about how this year's probable 4.5 percent state budget cuts will affect their programs. Students and families who rely on the centers could see a major decrease in services. The cuts could cause schools to lose some of the programs at their resource centers, which include after-school activities, mentoring, guest speakers, family nights and health education and referrals, she said. The centers also help students with needs such as school supplies and clothing.
