VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Valdosta State University leaders are still working on a furlough plan for employees.

This week, the University System ordered six furlough days this school year. The VSU President's Office says they're looking at taking three days before the end of this calendar year, possibly around winter break.

Three more furlough days will be scheduled between January and May. The furlough days will save about a million dollars and are part of the school's $8 million dollar budget cuts.

"We do not anticipate that it will affect instruction so they are working towards finding days where classes would be automatically off anyway," said Thressea H. Boyd,
Assistant to the President for Communications.

Leaders say they have no plans for layoffs.  

They'll decide next week what days employees will be furloughed. Employee's with salaries of 23,600 dollars and less will not be forced to take unpaid time off.
