KCTCS cuts more than 500 positions to close budget gap

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- More than 500 education jobs are being eliminated to save money.

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System cut more than 500 positions and suspended some college programs.

It's an effort to close a $26 million gap in its budget.

A KCTCS spokeswoman says many of the positions were vacant, so only 45 faculty and 125 staff were actually laid off.

Officials announced tuition will increase by 6.1 percent next year.
