ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County School Board will get some help to find a replacement for retiring Superintendent Dr. Sally Whatley.

Tuesday, members voted unanimously to use the resources of the Georgia School Board Association to find a new superintendent. Board members want to conduct a national search. The association will conduct a blind search according to the criteria school board members set.

"They have a wealth of knowledge, experience, they do it multiple times every year it just makes sense. We're comfortable with them they know our system well, our ups and downs our highs and low," said Emily Jean McAfee.

The search is expected to take approximately three months and cost the system about $8,000.
