Department of Education spokesman Mark Linabury said in a statement Wednesday evening that the money still needs to be found in the department's budget.
He said state officials agreed to fund fall sports due to the uncertainty over whether a labor concessions agreement will be ratified and stop budget cuts and layoffs. The state's 16 vo-tech schools face a deadline for committing to state athletic conferences.
The decision came the same day teachers, coaches and students held a rally outside a Bridgeport vo-tech school to protest budget cuts.
Linabury said there's no commitment to fund future sports seasons if the labor deal is not ratified.
