Dougherty County School officials said that it's not easy to find good math and science teachers to teach upper level courses in high school.

Albany High School students in an AP statistics class are now being taught by video conference.

Their teacher recently transferred to Monroe High.

"Math and science teachers are highly coveted in the teaching profession right now. They are sought after and highly recruited. And it's no different here in the Dougherty County School system. Good math and science teachers are worth their weight in gold," said J.D. Sumner with the Dougherty County School System.

AP courses allow high school students to earn college credits if they score high enough on an end-of-course exam.
