The DeKalb County School System will hold a public information meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 16, at Dunwoody High School regarding some proposed school system projects and improvements.
The meeting will be held from 6:30-8:30 pm.
The meetings are designed will brief the community on state-mandated capital outlay planning.
Every five years, school districts across the state submit a list of schools to participate in the state capital outlay program. The DeKalb district is completing an application for funding that requires a list of its schools, and the DeKalb County “Proposed School Organization” meets the state requirements.
The staff briefing will clarify that a list of schools is all that is needed to begin the state application process. The list of schools does not require any information about boundary lines. Consequently, the proposed school organization is not a redistricting plan but a list of school facilities the district expects to operate in the out years. This list is used to determine the state's award for capital project funding.
