DCSS to stay put on ASU’s campus

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty County School System spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to help renovate a building on Albany State University's campus for the Early College program.

Now, the college wants the system out.

Monday night, school board members said they plan to stay put at ASU's Early Learning Building unless the university pays back $350,000 the system put into the building.

Interim Superintendent Dr. David Mosely says the college needs the space in the building.

Board member Darrel Ealum hopes the board and ASU can come to an agreement.

"I think we should look at all options. As the attorney said tonight, we're in the catbird seat and I'm glad. If we did not push hard to get an updated memorandum of understanding then we wouldn't be in a catbird seat," said Ealum.

The school system has a signed deal allowing it to have early college classes in the building for the next three years with a 2-year option after that.
