"I think it's a minor inconvenience to cut some games where I think it'll help with our overall budget," said Joe Scalise, director of Mohonasen's athletic department. "I think it's a way to address our budget issues without impacting students drastically," said Scalise.
Scalese said he would have preferred that the decision to cut sports competitions have occurred at a more local level, but he supports the state's decision.
"Your hands are tied a little bit when the decision comes from that level," he said.
Scalese added that the district's main concern is making cuts that don't impact programs.
"I think in any area in education, you have to cut from where you're at; you want to try and move the program forward and expand any programs overall," said Scalese.
The next budget development meeting is Monday, March 9, at 6 p.m. The topic will be instruction, staffing and employee benefits.""
