LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — More than two dozen Jefferson County Public Schools employees who work in the district’s central offices have been informed that their positions have been eliminated to save money.

The Courier-Journal reports (http://cjky.it/1TyU2i8) that according to new organizational charts up for approval at Tuesday’s board meeting, several central office staffers may also end up with new job titles or in a different department.

Among the positions being cut are all eight of the district’s business machine technicians, as well as secretaries and custodians.

The district imposed a $2.4 million reduction in how much its departments were spending on job positions, and will cut nearly $3 million from central office in the 2016-17 school year once cuts to flexible spending are added.

District spokeswoman Jennifer Bislin says some employees with eliminated jobs will be able to apply to other positions.
