(Portland, OR)  --  Cuts are being made to things other than teachers' jobs in the new Portland Public Schools budget.  The school board expected a 14-million-dollar budget deficit, but last night district leaders revealed it was about 18-million-dollars.  Many had expected mass teacher layoffs, but school board members were credited with getting creative with the budget so that teachers wouldn't get pink slips.  Fewer than three teachers are expected to be laid off, as opposed to around 70 that some were expecting.
