17 non-classified employees have been laid off in the Fleming County School District. WKYT reports that the furloughs were announced Tuesday night by School Superintendent Tom Price. He says the action was needed to deal with a severe budget crunch…but that didn’t make it any easier…

"I see the pain in these people...it is very real, and heart-wrenching." - Tom Price

Price says it’s the second time this year the Fleming Schools have had to lay off employees.
