When a spring sport or event for a school district gets postponed, many might think rescheduling should not be that much effort.
That's actually not the case as an early spring snow fell on central Illinois last week forcing the postponement of almost an entire week of spring activities across the area, most notably the first week of the baseball and softball seasons in Illinois. Mike Williams, Superintendent of Maroa-Forsyth Schools indicates when scheduled activities like that have to get made up, it can become a challenge for their transportation staff.
Williams indicates the weather patterns to start this spring sports season were unique. He explains they saw warm days in February and then the season's are set to open and there was snow on the ground.
Another challenge a district like Maroa-Forsyth faces is coordinating with students in other districts that are part of their co-op.
He credits the transportation staff in the district and feels other area districts understand the challenge at the same time.
