Money cut from Kentucky education will be replaced thanks to a surplus in a state education program.

SEEK is the state's largest education program that puts nearly $3 billion dollars into Kentucky schools each year.

And while the governor announced a 3% cut to non-SEEK funds Monday, there are about $30 to 40 million leftover from SEEK this year that will go to education.

“K-12 education funding has been cut twice, this influx of funding from seek is going to offset that in most if not all cases,” said Governor Spokesperson Kerri Richardson.

The Commonwealth is still dealing with a projected $100 million budget shortfall for the current year.
