W. Ky. schools plan for possible federal cuts

Posted: Updated:

OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) -- Schools in western Kentucky have started to consider options if federal funding cuts are implemented next Friday.

If Congress doesn't move to stop the cuts scheduled to take place on March 1, nearly $3 billion in education funding would be cut.

Daviess County Superintendent Owen Saylor told the Messenger-Inquirer that the district could lose up to $535,000 if the federal cuts take place.

School administrators in western Kentucky discussed options last week when they met to begin drafting tentative budgets for the next school year.

Superintendents say funding cuts could mean bigger classes, fewer programs to aid students and fewer employees.
