In an effort to prevent lay-offs, the school board Monday night voted to require district employees to take two furlough days. This action goes for all employees. Chief Fiscal Officer Linda Hill says this action is being taken to make up for serious budget shortfalls.

"The reason for the furlough day, the main and only reason, other than have a balanced budget is to keep people from being laid off. Because if we didn't do this we would have to lay people off, said Linda Hill.

This action will allow the district to save $350,000.
