ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 Dougherty County School Board members are trying to work better together. Main topics during their annual retreat today included leadership and teamwork.

Board Chair Carol Tharin said the session helps them hone their skills and make them more productive.

"We have focused on several points we feel we were weak in. Because of the make-up of the school board now, we have a congenial spirit. We are going to move forward and work as a unit for the better of the DCSS," said Tharin.

Tharin said the school system will concentrate on the positive and make changes that will help the system operate better.
