25 new principals coming for DeKalb County Schools this school year

For DeKalb County Schools parents the thought of Aug. 6, the first day of school — that date that seems so far away, yet approaching like the wind slung off Pine Lake in a storm — may bring mixed feelings. 

Perhaps having the kids home all summer has been a joy of long hot days lounging in neighborhood pools. Perhaps patience is wearing thin and a break from the kids’ break sounds good. And maybe the kids need to get back to learning.

Yes! We can say it was all for learning, and that the kids also need to get back so they can adjust to changes at school.

Case in point, many students will arrive and meet new principals.

Here’s a full list of new leaders for all seven regions of DeKalb schools.
