DCSS Supplements tabled

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County School Board Wednesday delayed a vote on a plan that would cut some employees' salaries.

The finance committee approved a plan to revamp the way the system pays supplements for about 250 employees such as principals and coaches. Wednesday, the full board tabled the issue to give the finance department more time to finish the figures. Speech therapists sent a representative to today's meeting and complained their cutbacks are deeper than other personnel.

"They felt there was an underlying reason why they were at the bottom and thought they would do a presentation to give them some option and one was to take the highest salary and the lowest salary and then average it out," said Rosa Ward, GAE UniServ Director.

"Our problem is it affects a lot of people and we want to get the data out in a format we can release to the press and to the board. We haven't quite got it ready but we have to have it finished by the end of the week," said Robert Lloyd, DCSS Finance Director.

Board members are expected to approve the changes at the special meeting scheduled for next Tuesday.
