MARGARETTA TWP.

Sports and other extracurriculars will be spared the ax in Margaretta Schools -- for now.

District officials told a crowd of more than 200 parents and community members that a slightly better financial outlook -- and the possibility cutting extracurriculars could cost the district more than it saves -- means those activities will remain available this year.

Without a new levy, however, Margaretta Schools would be about $530,000 in the red at the end of the 2010-2011. If voters approve a 4.9-mill levy in November, the district would not run out of cash until the 2012-13 school year.
