The DeKalb School Board is holding a meeting on Thursday night to outline their demolition plans for the old Shallowford/Chamblee Middle School.

The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. in the Media Center of Chesnut Charter Middle School, located at 4576 N. Peachtree Road in Dunwoody.

The old Shallowford/Chamblee Middle School campus consists of one main school building located at 4680 Dunwoody Road. The original campus was constructed in 1968, an addition to the main school building was constructed in 1969, and a gymnasium building and covered walkway were constructed in 1998.

A 2011 Facility Condition Assessment complied for the district concluded:

"The main building is in overall poor and unsatisfactory condition. The main building and site are unsafe for entry and are not habitable or operational. A majority of the main building and site systems and components are damaged, deteriorated, or worn beyond economical repair or renovation. The main building and site present significant safety and liability hazards and it is recommended that the main building, 1998 gymnasium, covered walkway, and site are to be demolished and removed."
