Kentucky teachers who rallied last week at the state Capitol to support education funding plan to be there again Friday when state lawmakers consider overriding the Republican governor's veto of budget and revenue measures. Mike Stacy, superintendent of Beechwood Independent Schools in Fort Mitchell, said his district stands to lose $50,000 even if lawmakers override Gov. Matt Bevin's veto. If lawmakers don't have enough votes to override, Beechwood schools would lose $500,000 to $800,000 next year, Stacy said. Boone County Schools Superintendent Randy Poe warned Bevin's proposed cuts would force the district to lay off 110 staffers. Districts face a May 1 deadline to budget their staffing levels for next year.
