The School Council of Dunwoody High School is asking Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal to remove the DeKalb County Board of Education.
According to The Crier, the organization voted last week to send a letter to the governor, petitioning him to dissolve the school board.
Last month, the board was placed on probation by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools (SACS). The district has until May 31, 2013 to make progress in complying with several issues that SACS identified.
Shortly afterward, an online petition was started to build momentum for replacing the entire school board, which Gov. Nathan Deal has the authority to do.
Among other recommendations, the council's also has asked Deal to appoint a transitional school board; require the system to restructure its operations and organizational structure; and require more local school control.
