ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Despite deep budget cuts and furloughs some Dougherty County school administrators attended a leadership summit in North Georgia. School leaders say it's not taking money out of the classroom.

The Georgia Leadership Institute for School Improvement (GLISI) is designed to help school systems meet their goals and help principals and other administrators improve their leadership skills.

Dougherty County school leaders say the legislature allots money for leadership development that can't be spent on anything else.

"That program is set up to develop leaders and help teachers understand the use of statistics and education improvement to help schools perform better," said DCSS Public Information Director, R.D. Harter.>

Harter says more than 90 percent of principals in the Dougherty County system attended the summit.
