Students at a Montgomery County school district are rallying against proposed teaching cuts to fill a budget gap.
Hundreds of students, their parents, and other residents packed the Perkiomen Valley School District meeting.
The board is considering a proposal to eliminate teachers and other staff to fill a nearly $3-million budget gap.
Students say they fear the cuts will have a negative impact on academics.
"I feel like there's a lot of other places we can cut like on the bus routes and in after-school activities like sports," said Peyton Rieser, a student in the school district.
The school board is still weighing its options.
The final budget is expected to be voted on in June.
