School closures and new construction up for discussion

The DeKalb County School District on Tuesday will hold the first of a series of community meetings to discuss proposed school closures and openings.

The facilities plan for the next five years prompted preliminary lines for new attendance boundaries last month, but officials say any needed boundary changes will be discussed “sometime in the future and under a separate, detailed public process.”

The meetings are 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. The first is Tuesday at Ronald. E. McNair High School, 1804 Bouldercrest Rd., SE, Atlanta, followed by: Wednesday at Redan High, 5247 Redan Rd., Stone Mountain; Thursday at Martin Luther King, Jr. High, 3991 Snapfinger Rd., Lithonia; Jan. 15 at Tucker High, 5036 Lavista Rd., Tucker; and Jan. 16 at Dunwoody High, 5035 Vermack Rd., Dunwoody. A district-wide meeting is Jan. 17 at the district administrative complex, 1701 Mountain Industrial Blvd., Stone Mountain. The final school board vote on the facilities plan is Jan. 23.
