Proposal to outsource schools cleaning service postponed

SHEPHERSDVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Superintendent of Bullitt County Schools has asked that his proposal to outsource jobs be removed from the agenda for an upcoming board meeting.

Superintendent Keith Davis recently announced he found a way to save the district $240,000 a year by outsourcing the schools cleaning services.

Doing so would result in about 80 custodians losing their jobs.

In a newsletter Saturday, Davis said he and the board have been inundated with e-mails, calls and social media comments asking that the board not consider outsourcing.

Saturday the Kentucky Education Association hosted a meeting at the Fairfield Inn located in Brooks, Kentucky, where those who would be affected came together to fight for their jobs.

Although the outsourcing proposal will not be considered at the upcoming board meeting, Davis said that in the unlikely event a majority of the board members wish to reverse the decision, notification to the staff will be issued.
