Parkland College Sees Slight Enrollment Decrease - HUNTER MCKEE, Fox 55 Illinois

More changes could soon be coming to Parkland College. School officials recently met to discuss future plans with the uncertainty of the state budget. Thursday, Fox Illinois reported the school was laying off eight employees and now they're facing a decrease in enrollment. Parkland officials say they are experiencing a 3 to 4 percent drop in enrollment. Even with the recent cuts, they are still concerned about the lack of a state budget. The college says they expect to see larger enrollment numbers by mid-January, but this drop in enrollment is a percentage the board stated this week. They say the goal is to generate funding and move in a direction that gives them the possibility of functioning the best way possible.
