ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County school board athletic committee believes they have found a way to help assistant high school coaches who apply for head coaching jobs.
The athletic committee met with athletic director Johnny Seabrooks and human resources director Tracy Williams Wednesday afternoon.
The meeting follows Monday's board meeting where parents were upset that a Dougherty High assistant coach was not given an interview for the head coaching job at the school.
Seabrooks pointed out that coach did not meet the job requirements and the point system used to determine who is interviewed was requested and approved by the school board.
Those points are based on things like winning percentage, awards and other qualifications.
The board now wants points to be given to assistant coaches in the Dougherty County school system with the goal of helping them to earn an interview.
Michael Windom said. "I don't think it will deviate the search. This will simply give them the opportunity to be considered in the future if all of their points add up."
The school system is close to filling vacancies at Dougherty and at Albany High Schools.
