ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A computer glitch at Dougherty High School caused major scheduling problems for students. Even though school started a week ago, about 150 students still don't have full schedules, and during some periods no class to go to.

But administrators and guidance counselors are working around the clock to try to straighten out the mess.

It's fourth period at Dougherty Comprehensive High School and these students have no where to go. "I'm ready to get my classes, to get my stuff, my schedule," said Junior Ashley Wilson.  

She's one of about 150 students who doesn't have a complete class schedule for the year. Since school resumed last Wednesday, Ashley hasn't been assigned to any classes because of a computer glitch with the master schedule.

Principal Horace Reid said, "I've got three counselors on site now and I've got another coming this afternoon and we're working as hard as we can to get everybody in class."

For most of these kids, there's only a problem with one or two class periods each day. Reid asks for patience and hopes all students are in their proper classes tomorrow, and no later than the end of the week. "We're working on it," he said. "This is the 4th full day of this problem and we should have it resolved here real shortly."

So students like Ashley, can get back to class. The scheduling problem only occurred at Dougherty High and is not system wide.
