Albany-- Dougherty County School Superintendent Dr. Sally Whatley learned Monday night she'll serve another three years in the school system but her renewal came with opposition from some school board members.
School board members met in executive session to discuss the renewal of Whatley's contract with the school system. After discussion, members voted 4 to 3 in favor of keeping Whatley as school superintendent.
Board members David Maschke, James Bush and Chairman Willie Weaver voted against renewing Whatley's contract. Weaver says the board set several goals for Whatley after a 2-day retreat last year. He thinks those goals haven't been met.
"I'm not standing here saying that she won't continue the job she's doing. I'm here saying we could have gotten someone better possibly. We could have gotten someone worse possibly but the thing is we didn't do what we needed to do as board members to make a clear evaluation of what she's done in the past," says Weaver.
Emily Jean McAfee, Mike Windom, Richard Anson and Milton Griffin voted in favor of Whatley's contract renewal. Whatley wasn't available for comment Monday night.
