Jeffco’s Head Start program could serve 400 fewer kids during the next school year as a result of across-the-board federal funding cuts known as sequestration.
The 5 percent budget cut would mean about $152,000 less for the county’s Head Start program. Lynn Johnson, Jeffco’s human services director, said the cuts would mean laying off three teachers, and 96 fewer families — about 400 kids — would not be able to participate in the program during the 2013-14 school year.
