DCSS attorney releases list of non-renewal teachers
Of the 24 names included is Angela Shumate, the principal of Albany High School and Gloria Baker, Principal of Morningside Elementary School.
Baker is on the list for connection to the Dougherty County School System free lunch scandal.
The attorney for the school system says since they didn't receive evidence early enough to hold trials, the purpose of the non-renewals are to keep the teachers from automatically having their contracts renewed for next year.
Each teacher and principal will have a chance to prove their case before a tribunal, if they choose to do so.
We think that some of them there's pretty strong evidence about but there are others we think will ultimately show that the evidence is different. Each case is different, says Tommy Coleman, Attorney for the Dougherty County School System.
Coleman says, at this point, he hasn't received any statements as to whether or not any of the accused will go forward with a trial.See a copy of the list below: DOUGHERTY COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM NON-RENEWALS
