Hinojosa also said he is very confident that there would be no teacher layoffs in this budget.
Cobb schools look at furlough days and other methods to close deficit
Not all suggestions involved cuts
Johnson's initial suggestions include five furlough days and eliminating five instruction days at a savings of $15.5 million; not implementing a salary step for employees, $10 million; expanding the walking distance for students in elementary through high schools for bus pick up to 1.5 miles, $4.6 million; using $22.2 million from the district's reserves; and reducing teacher positions by 295 through attrition, $22.1 million.

"It's going to impact the quality of teachers that we can get in Cobb County," she said.
And although the ideas were just preliminary suggestions and not set in stone, it didn't bode well with board members.
She said she is worried the district may not have trouble getting first year teachers to apply to openings, but there would be fewer veteran educators.
Questions from educators
It would involve offering more online classes to students during a regular school day. The district would essentially collect funding from the state based on the number of students who take the classes.

Brad Johnson, the district's chief financial officer, spent two hours talking to the board about the school district administration's preliminary suggestions in order to keep Cobb Schools from going into debt in fiscal year 2014.
it was important for the board to have an in depth discussion about his suggestions.
Jackson said she was satisfied with the reaction from board members upon their seeing the resolutions for the first time.
"Can you imagine kindergarteners walking a mile and a half by themselves down Austell Road?" she asked.
One thing she is against is the bus route change, especially for students in elementary schools.
"The district staff has been working on this for the last two months. We expect you to be angry, mad or in denial," he said. "This is the worst case scenario and much different than last year."
Johnson said the first year they would start slowly by opening this opportunity up to around 66 teachers and then increase that if it proves to work well.
