ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County School Board members are optimistic they'll make it through the second phase of a process to be able to list Superintendent David Mosely as a part-time employee.     

That would save the system money. Yesterday, the State School Board unanimously approved a waiver that will allow Mosely to collect his state retirement benefits and allow the local board to reduce his salary, but the state retirement system must sign off.  

"The system would save well over $100,000 if the teacher retirement system will go a long with the State Board of Education and approve Dr. Mosely to work for us at 49%salary," said Darrel Ealum, School Board Member for District 6.       

The board initially agreed to pay Mosely $225,000 next year plus $12,000 for travel and a $12,000 dollar annuity. The board hopes the retirement system will decide by the end of the month whether to pay Mosely's benefits and allow the school system to pay him 49% of that new contract.
