The DeKalb County School District is working to upgrade aging school facilities and expand school district capacity in our area to accommodate a rapidly growing student population. Expansion is occurring through both expansion of current school buildings, and construction of new schools. There will be a 3-part public input process this fall for 3 elementary schools in Region 1 and Region 2 (Austin, Cross Keys North, and Pleasantdale). Visit www.dekalbschoolsga.org/redistricting for more information and an overview of this process.
For each elementary school, there are a series of 3 distinct meetings – Meeting 1 (big-picture input,) Meeting 2 (feedback on several options,) and Meeting 3 (feedback on a refined option.) There is an opportunity through October 6th to submit on-line comments (“Round 1 Community Survey”) relevant to the content of Round 1 meetings. To answer this survey, go to www.dekalbschoolsga.org/redistricting, scroll to the top of the page, and click on the tab for the elementary school for which you’d like to answer the survey. On that school-specific tab, you’ll also find maps with specific planning units (#s of students in geographic areas), and land use maps. A video of the presentation given at Round 1 meetings can also be found on each page.
Austin Elementary School: All 3 meetings will be held at Dunwoody High School 7-8:30 p.m. 9/26, 10/23, 11/20.
Cross Keys North Elementary School: All 3 meetings will be held at Chamblee Charter High School 7-8:30 p.m. 9/25, 10/16, 11/19.
