ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Dougherty County School leaders are undergoing three days of classroom training before students head back to class in several weeks.

It's back to work for 230 principals, assistant principals, and teacher leaders.

Wednesday they got a break at noon, but they've been working on team building skills and learning about new classroom techniques to help students learn better.

"We're on a mission to retool administrators to be able to better lead and guide and serve the needs of the children," said Leadership Performance Consultant Dr. Wanda West.

Superintendent Dr. Joshua Murfree is also participating in the training.

He called the training a leadership advancement retreat and challenged teachers to advance, saying retreating isn't an option.
