Fayette County to discuss smaller staffing cuts for schools

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - We're learning more about how Fayette County Schools will try to solve budget problems. The district needs to cut $20 million by May.

On Tuesday, Superintendent Tom Shelton told our partners at the Herald-Leader that schools could see a 3% cut in staff. That's down from the 5% cuts in staff he previously discussed. Shelton tells the paper there would be more cuts at the district level instead. He's expected to discuss the 3% cut at a meeting with principals on Wednesday.

The district hops to make cuts by not replacing employees who retire or resign.
