NEWTON — Experiencing fewer than projected credit hours with the expectation of further enrollment decline, Sussex County Community College will lay off more than 20 employees effective June 30, the end of its fiscal year.

In making the announcement to the college community Friday afternoon, college President Jon Connolly said the workforce reduction is necessary to stabilize the college’s financial position.
While specific numbers and positions have not been announced, Connolly said a minimum of 20 full-time equivalent employees would be laid off.

The school has 121 full-time employees and 284 part-time employees that calculate to the equivalent of 263 full-time employees. Both full- and part-time employees will be part of the cuts, Connolly said.
