It's not definite yet, but Houston County's school budget does not include furloughs for teachers.
If approved in June, the budget for the 2012 fiscal year will be the first one in three years with no furlough days.
Assistant Superintendent for Finance Stephen Thublin said the board set aside federal money earlier this year to try and prevent furloughs.
He calls the budget situation improving, with fewer state education cuts this year, although they're still working with about $25 million less than last year.
Thublin said, "We're not having the amount of cuts we have had to endure in the past. As a result, we're not going to have to go through and look at reducing the work force."
He said the board approved creating 26 new positions in February and March, and the budget suggests creating eight more.
Six of those eight jobs would be special education teaching jobs.
