Superintendent turns down higher salary

December 8, 2003
Albany- Dougherty County's school superintendent is signing a three year contract, but is refusing a raise.

Dr. Sally Whatley agreed to a contract with a salary of just under $122,000, which is her current salary.

The board offered her more than $136,000 and a $5,000 bonus. But with the board's budget constraints, Whatley turned the offer down.

The contract begins July 1 and she will get any cost of living increase that other administration receives at that time.
