Superintendent will full time pay for part time work

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The interim Dougherty County School Superintendent says he's pleased with a ruling that will allow him to continue to collect his full $175,000 salary and his full $154,000 retirement pay.

A new law says state retirees must give up retirement benefits if they go back to work full time. School systems are required to have full-time superintendents.

Thursday, the state school board voted to allow Dr. David Mosely to be a part time worker, but taxpayers will continue to fund his full time salary and retirement package.

Mosely said he's glad he'll continue to lead the system. "It makes me feel good because that's what I wanted to do. It's best for me. It's best for the system. It saves the system about 90,000 bucks in salary they would have had to pay me had I had to come out of retirement, so I see it as everybody wins with this."

The school board will meet Friday to finalize a new contract for Mosely. They plan to keep him on through next June as they begin the search for a full time replacement.
