The DeKalb County School District will hold public meetings to hear input about redistricting related to two new elementary schools in Dunwoody and Doraville.
In January 2020, DCSD will open a replacement Austin Elementary in Dunwoody. In August 2020, the district will open a new Cross Keys North Elementary in Doraville to serve the Cross Keys and Chamblee Charter high school clusters.
The redistrictings address additional student capacity at both new facilities, as well as the overcrowding of elementary schools in the Chamblee, Cross Keys, Dunwoody and Lakeside high school clusters, a press release said.
For both redistrictings, there will be a series of three meetings. The first meeting will introduce the effort and invite public feedback, the second meeting will present alternative options, and the third meeting will present the staff-recommended plan.
