Dougherty school chief search isn't urgent

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  It will likely be next year before the Dougherty County School Board starts interviewing candidates for the superintendent's job.

Superintendent Dr. Sally Whatley announced last month that she's retiring, but will stay until a successor is hired.

Thursday board members spent an hour talking about where they'll advertise the position, how long it will take to find Whatley's replacement, and what qualities they'll be looking for when they interview candidates in January. 

"We're certainly looking for somebody who will take the system," said School Board Chairman David Maschke. "Recognize the improvements that have been made to this point and be able to take us to the next level, that is a motivator, someone who is able to communicate well not just with people in the system, but also with the community at large."

The Board also wants to hear from you. Starting next week on the Dougherty County Schools website, you can participate in an online survey to suggest what qualities you'd like in a new superintendent.
