Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Erroll B. Davis Jr. posted Friday on the APS website 25 “guiding principles” he is considering in developing a final plan for redistricting. The principles, which he in an introductory letter said are preliminary, can be found at this link.
Demographers began their research in May 2011 and have since debriefed APS board members and Atlanta City Council. The superintendent then met with board members to gain feedback and insight on the proposed guiding principles.
The next course of action requires community meetings where the demographers will present their scenarios for public consideration and feedback. Click here to view the schedule and details of the community meetings.
Intown residents should attend the meeting at Jackson High School, Monday, January 30, 2012, as the redistricting could affect schools that feed into Grady and Jackson high schools such as Morningside Elementary School.
Buckhead residents need to attend the North Atlanta meeting, Wednesday, February 1, 2012, as the redistricting could affect any schools that feed into North Atlanta such as Sarah Smith Elementary, Garden Hills Elementary, Morris Brandon Elementary, and Warren T. Jackson Elementary.
