Classes Continue In Cairo

(Cairo, IL)--While the financially troubled Cairo School District remains at the breaking point, it looks like students will finish the school year.

A month ago, the superintendent said school might be shut down as early as April. But now, money is beginning to come in.  The district has qualified for a grant good for 250-dollars per student and more may be on the way.

Cairo schools still need 900-thousand dollars, and officials have applied for a loan from the State of Illinois. The superintendent says even if that money doesn't come in before the end of the year, class will remain in session.

Superintendent Robert Isom says he may be forced to make some money-saving changes over the Summer. He's considering shutting-down the junior high, and moving 7th and 8th graders into the high school.

6th graders would go back down to an elementary school.
