ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Dougherty County School leaders are waiting to hear if they'll get a nearly $6 million school improvement grant to help two under-achieving schools.
The money would pay for 10 new positions at Monroe and Dougherty High schools including a literacy coach, Math support teacher, and school improvement specialists. Board members voted to go ahead and advertise those jobs.
"It funds a number of people and supplies and it's trying to get our under performing schools to give us additional help to get them back up to speed, and we've made a lot of progress," said Superintendent Dr. David Mosely.
The system should find out this month whether the grant is approved. If it is, leaders hope to have most of the new employees on the job by the beginning of the school year.
