ALBANY — With support and assistance from the Georgia Department Of Education Office of District Effectiveness, Dougherty County School System Superintendent Butch Mosely is assembling a team of leaders from across the district and community to research the current condition of the system and formulate a strategic plan to guide improvement for coming years.

A core team that included district effectiveness specialists Bobby Smith, Iris Moran and Terri Gaspierik; and program specialist for compliance Kathy Giddens, met with Mosely and district leaders Ufot Inyang and R. D. Harter recently.

The core group met as a design team to outline the process and components to be used for strategic planning in Dougherty County. They identified the method of selection of team members for a District Strategic Planning Team (DSPT). A calendar was established to provide meeting dates and schedules for planning activities.

“A strategic plan is used to guide all of us toward improving student achievement through quality teacher performance and the efficient use of resources,” said Mosely. “I am looking forward to working with staff and teachers to assess where we are now and to map our direction for the future.”

The next step in the process will be informing school leaders about the process and the superintendent’s selection of District Strategic Planning Team members.
