ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County school officials are meeting with state leaders this week to discuss the future of the interim superintendent.

The rules committee will meet with school officials Wednesday afternoon in Atlanta to discuss the school systems request for a waiver to allow Dr. David Mosely, the retired interim superintendent, to continue working as a 49% employee.  

A new law prohibits Mosely from collecting his state retirement benefits if he works full time for the system.  His contract is up one week from today, but school board members are hoping to extend his contract until June as they search for a permanent replacement.

"If they approve it, the board will be able to keep the same salary structure that we now have for superintendent Mosely.  And he will continue to be able to draw his retirement and we'll pay him the same money that we've always had," said School System Attorney Tommy Coleman.

If the waiver is not approved, Mosely has the option to come out of retirement.  School board members will then likely offer Mosely a raise to make up for some of the retirement income he'll lose. 

"We've had great progress over the last few months, and I think the board is afraid that should they not be able to continue on this same path that they're on right now with Dr. Mosely, that they'll enter in a period of chaos," said Coleman.

 The rules committee will make a recommendation to the state board, who will make the final vote on Thursday.  The Dougherty County school board will have a meeting on Friday to amend Mosely's contract.
