Muscogee County schools to vote to eliminate furlough days

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Muscogee County teachers could see more money in their paychecks if the school board votes next week to get rid of two furlough days.

According to school board president Cathy Williams, one teacher work day and one school day could be placed back on the 2013 fiscal year calendar.

Williams says the money to put the two days back on the calendar comes from programs that they cut and positions the board decided not to fill.

The board will vote on the measure Monday.
