ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  It appears about 20 employees will take a voluntary retirement plan offered to Dougherty School employees.  

Right now, those employees cost the system about $1.1 Million a year in salaries and benefits.

While the numbers may change, the plan is likely to save the school system about two-hundred thousand dollars a year.

"These are fluid, and again the idea of the scheme has been approved by the finance committee and we'll put it to the board for final approval next Wednesday," said DCSS Finance Director Robert Lloyd. 

Not all of the vacant positions will be filled, and some will be replaced at a lower salary than those retiring. They range from teachers to paraprofessionals, cafeteria workers, and custodians.
