ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Dougherty County School Board Members say they want to get the ongoing CRCT investigation behind them.

The school system is entering a critical time period leading up to this year's testing. Superintendent Joshua Murfree said rather than being focused solely on the tests, many teachers and parents are concerned about the state's investigation. While Murfree says it's important for the state to do their job and finish the investigation, he says the system needs to put it behind them.

"It disrupts education and I'm quite sure that the governor, past or present doesn't want that kind of interruption and I certainly don't as a superintendent or a CEO. We want to move forward if we can't find anything, they can't find anything let it go," said Dougherty County Schools Superintendent Dr. Joshua Murfree.

School officials say they will continue to cooperate with state investigators as long as it doesn't interfere with the teachers time in the classroom.
