LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- At a Tuesday board meeting, the JCPS reorganization plan was approved, leaving many people with questions unanswered.

JCPS Superintendent Marty Pollio said this is all in an effort to bring better efficiency to their department and repurpose as many funds as possible.

When the numbers were announced Tuesday night, they needed to be revised on the presentation. Some of them have been corrected but JCPS has yet to announce the final numbers. 

Here's what we know so far:

  • 91 administrator positions will be eliminated, 75 of which are currently vacant
  • 21 positions will be reclassified up either in salary, grade or days
  • 45 positions will be reclassified down either in salary, grade or days
  • 157 new positions created

The Central Office estimates $8 million in savings in the next decade; part of which is coming from a lower salary to new hires.

Central office employees will keep their current salary for one year with a deduction next summer.

They announced at the meeting they hadn't updated the numbers because of cuts to psychologists and social workers that needed to be included.

Another big change is redesigning the HR department.

They feel in order to continue to work around coherence and efficiency in each department and increase supports in schools, these changes need to be done.
