Alabama 2-year college program for youths likely to close

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The chancellor of Alabama's two-year college system says a program to help troubled youths stay out of prison is running out of funds and will likely be closed in June.

Chancellor Bradley Byrne told the state school board Thursday the department has no choice but to shutter the Community Intensive Training for Youth program halfway through the fiscal year.

Byrne said more than 60 employees were informed they were being laid off on May 1 but they have all filed appeals and the system is required to continue paying them through the appeals process. He said the layoffs would have cut two-thirds of the staff and drastically reduced the number of youths served but the cuts would have allowed the program to keep operating at least through October.
