ALBANY, Ga. — Dougherty County School System Interim Superintendent Butch Mosely said he misspoke concerning two DCSS employees Thursday during an interview with The Albany Herald in which he discussed system personnel changes he would recommend Monday to the School Board.
The confusion revolves around Monroe High Principal Valerie Thomas and Dougherty High Principal Jose Roquemore, who Mosely originally said would not have their contracts renewed.
“If I said I would not be recommending contract renewals for Ms. Thomas and Mr. Roquemore, then I misspoke,” Mosely said late Thursday evening. “What I meant to say was that those two employees would not be returning as the principals of their respective schools. I’ll take the hit on that.”
Mosley said that he would move the two administrators into other positions within the system, but did not specify where.
The Superintendent stressed that his recommendations were subject to change and the situation remained fluid.
The moves were part of Mosely’s two-year plan to improve discipline and academic performance throughout the district.
