Deadline extended to save modified sports
West Irondequoit, N.Y. – Efforts to save modified sports in West Irondequoit School District are getting more time.
The All Sports Booster Club now has until September 2 to raise the $48,000 needed to bring back 9 of the 21 teams that were cut from the budget.
So far, the group has raised $44,000.
"Unfortunately, we didn’t pass the budget and this is a painful lesson and I just can’t thank the community enough and our parents especially for saying this is important for our kids," says Anthony Lipani, West Irondequoit Athletic Director.
If the money is raised by September 2, it will go before the school board for a vote.
