Dougherty school district may see some changes

June 19, 2006

Albany--Some changes may be in store for the Doughtery County School System.

About 2,800 people work for Dougherty County Schools. Now, board members want to make sure employee salaries are in-line with others state-wide school districts.

The board hired a consultant to compare Dougherty County with other systems.

He will also examine the district's organizational structure and determine if certain positions should be combined or eliminated.

"We want to make sure that our salaries are competitive and that our organizational structure is in line with the amount of students that we have," says Michael Windom, board vice chairman.

The study should be completed in about four months. Based on the results, the board will then make any changes it deems necessary.
