South DeKalb to lose four schools
Congratulations goes out to the North DeKalb parents who worked hard to save their schools from the budget chopping block. Kudos to the South DeKalb parents who will be up in arms over the decision to close four of our community schools. Your lack of involvement has caught up to you. According to the AJC, Skyhaven, Midway, Kelly Chapel,Toney, Gresham, Meadowview, and Peachcrest are on the short list to be closed. I am not at all suprised by the decision to close these schools. The test scores are atrocious, and parental involvement is minimal at best.The task force recommending that the board shutter these schools know they will not have to face the wrath of they would have faced had they decided to close schools in North DeKalb. The decision will at least insure there will be fewer failing schools in South DeKalb.
