E.B. to layoff four

State mandated raises force school board to make cuts

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

Concerns regarding the lack of students predicted to enroll next year also have Jones and Brown cutting costs. 

“The problem is that our enrollment has gone down...,” Jones said. “Right now, you can’t really get a clear prediction (on next year).”

Construction costs, along with personnel costs to adjust to new construction, has also stretched East Bernstadt’s budget. Small matters such as air conditioning, energy usage, and custodial work have taken a new prominence.

“We’re going to have to write lots of grants and hope we get them,” said Jones. “But we’re very hopeful our enrollment will begin to grow because our school has turned around.”
