ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Dougherty County School Board members don't know how long it will be before their new superintendent takes over.  They still must come up with a contract and resolve other issues.

In a four to three vote last week, the board approved Dr. Joshua Murfree to succeed Dr. Sally Whatley, but they have not offered a formal contract. 

Board Chairman David Maschke says the board should have addressed a contract and salary with candidates during a second interview, but they never had a second interview with Murfree. 

They have given Murfree information to help draft a contract.

"I've given him sample contracts that the Georgia School Board Association gave us, as well as a copy of Dr. Whatley's latest contract that he and his lawyer are reviewing," Maschke said. " My understanding is that they are going to come back with a draft of the contract that they would like to propose."

When we asked who Murfree's attorney is, we were told he's not willing to disclose that information.      

The Board must also still apply for a waiver so Murfree can be certified as a superintendent in Georgia. 

Dr. Whatley may be asked to stay on as a consultant to wrap up the CRCT investigation if Murfree is approved to take the job before the end of the school year.
