BERKS COUNTY, Pa. -

Parents in the Daniel Boone Area School District who were expecting to find out if kindergarten and other extracurricular activities would be cut left with some confusion during a Monday night board meeting.

Several extracurricular activities are on the chopping block to fill a $5 million budget gap.

But during the meeting, FOX 29's Dave Kinchen reports board members became confused on just what they were supposed to be voting on.

Eventually, the board decided to table the cuts all together.

A standing room only crowd of parents and teachers were left confused and angry over the lack of clarity and action.
