Fayette County School Board members address budget shortfall

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Fayette County school leaders hear more ideas Tuesday about how to fix a $20 million budget shortfall.

A second budget input session was held at Northeast Christian Church in Hamburg. Tuesday's session was mainly for school employees. It was a full house as people worked in groups discussing how to make up the shortfall. School employees shared what they thought should not be cut from the budget.

"There are some things that just need to be protected to make sure they're maintained at the level that they are, if not even possibly increased. So we may be able to target specific cuts so that we don't have to do across the board general cuts," Fayette County Superintendent, Dr. Tom Shelton, told us Tuesday.

The budget will be presented to the school board in May.
