The board members who opposed the proposed budget by Cobb Superintendent Dr. Michael Hinojosa are Kathleen Angelucci, Alison Bartlett and Tim Stultz.
After the board failed to adopt a budget last Thursday, they came back Monday and approved a budget that restored two of the five furlough days originally proposed and media paraprofessionals in the elementary schools.
In a separate vote, they also approved an amended 2012-2013 school year calendar that included the three furlough days, 6-1, with board member David Banks opposing. The furlough days will be taken on Dec. 21, Feb. 15, 2013, and May 30, 2013.
Faced with a shortfall of about $62.4 million for next year, the board's recommendation also included increasing class sizes by two students on average, cutting 350 teaching positions of which only 15 remain, delaying a step increase for eligible employees to mid-year, using $23 million in SPLOST II excess funds to lower the property millage rate and $28.2 million in reserve funds to help offset the deficit.
