SKCTC officials: Jobs cut because budget, enrollment woes
Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKCTC) officials say 10 employees are affected by staffing adjustments, citing budget and enrollment woes.
"It is not uncommon to notify a few people each year that their contracts will not be renewed. This year, 10 positions were affected. Two of those were at the Whitesburg campus," officials said in a release.
Of the 10 positions affected, seven contracts were not renewed and three positions were eliminated.
A decline in enrollment and revenue shortfalls were mentioned as reasons for not renewing the contracts and eliminating positions.
Officials said the school is not operating under a deficit, but staffing adjustments help prevent that.
