The Dougherty County school superintendent will continue working for the system as a part-time employee.

The state retirement system has now signed off on the state school board's approval of a waiver allowing the system to list Dr. David Mosely as a 49% employee.

The school board approved a new contract by a 3 to 1 vote during Wednesday's meeting. 

It reduces his local salary and allows Mosely to continue collecting his state retirement benefits.
     
"It's considerably less. It's less than past superintendents have been paid. I just think it's outstanding. It's going to save our system over $100,000," said Darrel Ealum, school board member.

"It's nothing against the superintendent. We've come a long way. But I can't in good conscious vote for all of that money," said Reverend James Bush, school board member.

The board originally agreed to pay Mosley $225,000 next year, plus $12,000 for travel and a $12,000 annuity.

He will now make 49% of that salary, but will collect more than $150,000 in retirement pay.
