Calhoun school superintendent Jane Lynch advised school board members Monday night that a money crunch is on with the high cost of gasoline for school buses.

Lynch indicated she would be discussing possible cut-backs related to extra-curricular activities and field trips.

Kanawha County schools have already cut-back most activities related to children attending arts events.

Faced with sharply higher diesel fuel prices, Superintendent Ron Duerring is cutting down drastically on field trips, said Jane Roberts, assistant superintendent for elementary education.

Most West Virginia counties are in the process of reducing fuel costs.

Kanawha will maintain academic trips, but performance and entertainment events are being cut.

Most counties are maintaining transportation costs to sporting events.

Some past events could continue provided fund-raising provides enough financing to continue.
