John A. Logan board candidates discuss, budget cuts, layoffs and future of school - ISAAC SMITH, The Southern

It has been an eventful year for JALC. In March of 2016 the Board of Trustees announced it would be laying off 55 employees, the majority of whom were teaching staff, in response to the state’s ongoing budget impasse, which has reduced school funding to a trickle. The school received $4.3 million in funding last year as the result of a stopgap spending measure passed by the state legislature. JALC’s vice president of business services, Brad McCormick, said this would have gotten the school through March or April of this year were it not for the extra nearly $1 million raised, which will see them through the end of their fiscal year on June 30. He also said the college is operating at 10 percent under budget.
