ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County school board members say they're getting "new blood" into schools as they continue to try to turn around the troubled system. But even after appointments of administrators Monday night, multiple schools are without principals.

Board members approved contracts for educators and assigned administrators to schools during their meeting Monday night. William Chunn will remain principal at Westover. Current Radium Springs Middle principal Vincent Davis will take over at Monroe.

The state will help choose the Albany High principal and Dougherty High is still open pending an offer to an out of state candidate. Interim Superintendent David Mosely is still interviewing candidates for several other principal positions as well. 

Board Chairperson Carol Tharin said, "I think that the superintendent and his interview committees have done a real thorough job. They've interviewed a lot of candidates, some within the system, some outside the system. And, so, I think we're going to be getting some new blood."

The board also accepted the resignation of Westover High teacher and assistant soccer coach Bryan Haas. Dr. Mosley recently suspended him for seven days for making inappropriate comments to students and failing to follow directions from the principal.

Board members say they won't begin a search for a permanent superintendent until at least the end of the year.
