DeKalb County School Board Postpones Vote on Evansdale Re-districting: It took an outcry from parents but the DeKalb County School Board postponed a vote on the proposed re-districting of Evansdale, Livsey and Idlewood Elementary Schools.  Unfortunately, the proposal is still on the table.  But Superintendent Cheryl Atkinson had a taste of what happens when you ignore stakeholders when making dramatic changes in the structure of public schools

From the AJC:

Responding to a parent outcry, the DeKalb County school board postponed a vote Monday on selling bonds to expedite school construction and also didn’t take a first vote on school redistricting as it had planned.

Proposed attendance lines that would affect several thousand students have drawn criticism from parents, as has a plan by Superintendent Cheryl Atkinson to float $80 million in bonds to get construction under way sooner using anticipated sales tax proceeds.

Atkinson floated her plan in late November and initially called for a vote on it Monday. Then, last week, the district backpedaled, saying Monday’s vote would be the first of two, with the second Jan. 23. On Monday before the meeting, however, officials announced that the first vote on the draft plan would now be delayed until the board’s next regular meeting Jan. 7. At Monday’s meeting, Atkinson also asked the board to withdraw her bond resolution.

Parents need to continue to barrage Board members and the Superintendents office with your opinions.  Parents, students, teachers and property owners are stakeholders in this decision.
