ST. FRANCISVILLE- A number of West Feliciana Parish School System employees were told Tuesday, they were being laid off.

Eighteen workers, mostly teachers, were told their terminations were due to a lack of money and a drop in enrollment.

In March, Superintendent Hollis Milton sent a reduction in force letter to system employees.

The system is trying to fill a $1.5 million hole in the budget.

Previously, salaries were frozen and administrators took a pay cut.
