Albany - - Good news may be on the way for some employees with the Dougherty County School system. 

The school district wants to help boost retirement pay for public service workers.  That includes school bus drivers, custodians, and maintenance staff.

Currently, if teachers don't use all their sick days, they get extra retirement pay. That isn't the case for all school district employees. Administrators want to change that.  

"The finance committee has agreed today to enact a policy for every two days in excess of 90 sick days at retirement, we will pay them one day into a retirement fund. Our current number looks like that will cost us approximately $150,000 and it will range from payments to $10,000  downwards into that retirement fund," says Robert Lloyd.

The school board will vote on the recommendation next week.
