Five of Pennsylvania’s 14 state-owned schools have been notified of possible cuts in the 2018-19 year.

According to WPXI, administrators at California, Clarion, Edinboro, Mansfield and Cheyney universities have given their faculty notice of potential layoffs and program cuts, as state schools struggle with enrollment rates.

Notice of the potential cuts were given ahead of time so that discussions on how to avoid or minimalize them could occur, WPXI reports.

Since 2010, each school has seen at least a 20 percent or higher decline in enrollment.

As a result of potential changes, new programs of study could be offered, while standing programs could be cut.
