Here’s how you can get to know Horton and provide input on the decision.
Horton will participate in three town hall meetings this week. Each meeting is open to the general public to attend in person, and each meeting will be livestreamed. Each two-hour meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the following locations:
- April 12: Chamblee High School (3688 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, Chamblee)
- April 13: McNair Middle School (2190 Wallingford Drive, Decatur)
- April 14: Auditorium at district office (1701 Mountain Industrial Blvd., Stone Mountain)
The public is invited to submit questions prior to the town hall meetings or provide feedback about the finalist by competing a survey. The survey is available on the district’s website.
During the day on April 12, 13 and 14, Horton is also scheduled to visit schools in each region. He will tour the facilities and meet students, administrators and staff. These visits are closed to the general public.
