The DeKalb County school board may take action Thursday to close a $41 million shortfall in the sales tax-funded construction budget.
Officials discovered the problem in late February and Superintendent Cheryl Atkinson notified the board last week. She wants to close the budget gap with $8 million in contingency funds and $33 million in cutbacks. The eliminated work would include planned air conditioning installations, new toilets and access ramps for students in wheelchairs.
The meeting is at 11 a.m., at 1701 Mountain Industrial Boulevard, Stone Mountain.
