The Cahokia School District 187's board unanimously agreed Monday, April 8, to a tentative plan to eliminate dozens of teaching jobs and go next school year without an athletics director, coaches or extracurricular activities. The school district is blaming shortcomings in state funding for the plan. Superintendent Art Ryan said a final decision in the 4,000-student district won't come until the state signs off on a budget. AP Photo
