Nashua faces budget cuts, looks to keep athletic programs
NASHUA- Some athletic programs are on the line in one of New Hampshire's largest cities.
Nashua is now looking at the budget, trying to find a way to save a number of sports including hockey.
Concerned parents, coaches, and athletes filled the room at Thursday's budget meeting. Nashua South hockey players represented a number of programs in danger if being cut.
Parents and coaches attended an earlier budget meeting that prompted a meeting between the hockey coaches from North and South and school officials.
Within the past few years parents started having to pay a fee for any sports their kids play. Parents and coaches are asking school officials to take a closer look at the numbers. Officials are researching the option of some sports teaming up with another high school to form a co-op.
Along with hockey; skiing, gymnastics, and freshman girls' basketball have been discussed as possible cuts.
A public forum will be held in March.
