DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA -

Dougherty County School Board members voted to ask the state for a waiver to allow them to keep the interim superintendent on the job without him losing any retirement pay on Monday.

A new state law says retired educators forfeit their retirement pay if they go back to work for more than 49% of the time. Every system must have a full-time superintendent.
    
The local board is asking the State School Board of Education for permission to list Dr. David Mosley as a 49% employee so that he can continue to receive his $154,000 a year pension and his $175,000 a year current salary.

"Well, I wanted to stay, we got this started, and things are going well, and the community has been very responsive, we got a good leadership team in place, the employees are excited about the new way of doing business, and so I want to see it through. This is more to me than about a paycheck," said interim superintendent Dr. David Mosley.

Board members aren't optimistic the state will grant the waiver. They're discussing new salary options with Dr. Mosley that would allow them to keep him on the job if he loses his retirement pay.
