Dooly Co. School board faces suspension over performance

VIENNA, GA (WALB) -

The Dooly County School Board is facing suspension because the system is in danger of losing its accreditation.

The school board members will have a chance to tell the state school board why it should not recommend the Governor suspend them from office at a hearing set for November 5th in Atlanta.

The state school board said they are required to hold such a hearing after the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools lowered the Dooly system's status to Under Review, which is one step away from having their accreditation revoked.

The Dooly system's attorney contends state law for removing school board members does not apply in the case.
