With Governor Matt Mead calling on state agencies to prepare for eight percent budget cuts, Casper Community College might have to leave vacancies unfilled and cut program operating budgets. The school isn’t planning for layoffs, but could leave vacancies unfilled and cut operating budgets. School president Walt Nolte says that will affect class sizes and course offerings.
“Probably the most significant impact for students is that there would be fewer classes, and in the classes that we do offer, there would be higher student numbers,” Nolte says.
Nolte says that there will also be no pay raises for faculty and staff.
