      School officials have taken another step toward selecting the next superintendent for the Dougherty County School System.Monday evening at 5:00 p.m. parents and community members turned out to voice their opinions about what qualities they want in a school superintendent.The public forum was put on by Dougherty County school officials to include the community in the search to replace Interim Superintendent Dr. David Mosely.Bill Sampson, Georgia School Boards Association Consultant, gave a report of survey results to date.Out of the many who attended the forum, nine people signed up to address the board. Each speaker was given three minutes to talk.This was only a listening session for school board members.Also in the meeting, Bill Sampson released information from an online survey that people participated in to give their opinion about the superintendent search. Out of 450 participants, 50 percent wanted a superintendent who has a doctorate degree, 60 percent wanted someone who has experience as a superintendent, and 60 percent wanted someone with experience in the k-12 classroom.
