FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – The Affordable Health Care Act is not that affordable for Fort Wayne Community Schools.

FWCS officials say they are cutting the hours of 600 part-time teaching aides and cafeteria workers by five hours a week beginning June 3.

Under the provision of the health care law, any one working 30 hours a week would be eligible for employer provided health care coverage.

FWCS Superintendent Dr. Wendy Robinson says officials looked at the numbers and figured it would cost the school system $10 million a year if employee hours were not cut.
