Students and parents at L’Anse Creuse schools are outraged after learning of budget cuts that could potentially change class schedules for high school students from 7 periods to 6 periods.

The program would give students four core subjects and two electives instead of three.

A spokeswoman for the district said students would still remain in class the same amount of time each day.

Students and parents were so angry with the proposal that they packed a school board meeting to voice their concerns of their district failing them.

School administration officials say that this plan would add a few minutes to each class period and would give students up to 21 hours of additional learning in subjects they may struggle with. 

Other cuts have been made leading up to the current proposal, which still require the full support of the school board.
