Frederick Co. won't eliminate varsity swimming

January 22, 2009

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- The Frederick County school board has rejected a proposal to end varsity swimming in the county high schools.

The decision came at a meeting attended by several dozen high school swimmers and other opponents of the proposal to end varsity swimming and close the three high school pools to save money.

Board members have left open the option of cutting other pool operation costs.

The county school system is looking to save millions of dollars and has found nearly 30 possible ways to save money. The list includes cutting overtime, reducing workshop expenses and setting thermostats in all buildings to 68 degrees.

The board has scheduled a public hearing Feb. 11 to consider the budget.
