The DeKalb County school board was prepared for a preliminary vote Monday on redistricting and a new five-year school construction plan, but officials announced before the meeting that the vote would likely be delayed until Jan. 7 until changes can be made.
The plan is the basis of a “Local Five-Year Facility Plan,” a document that justifies up to $40 million in state capital money. A second vote on the final draft is scheduled for Jan. 23, leaving parents just over two weeks to review it, with public information sessions expected Jan. 8-17.
The proposal is on the school system website, but will be amended in response to criticism, district spokesman Jeff Dickerson said. View the plan at www.dekalb.k12.ga.us/splost-iv, and e-mail comments to email@example.com.
