Parent Councils United: Q&A From DeKalb Superintendent's
"State of the District" Address


Many thanks to the members of Parent Councils United for taking notes during the Superintendent's "State of the District" Address.  I do not believe the answers will surprise many.  It's business as usual in DeKalb Schools.

You may leave any comments you may have on the Parent Council United's Facebook page.  https://www.facebook.com/PCUDeKalb/posts/738852326227275

Pertinent for the Dunwoody community, Question 15 on Block Scheduling (how many times has DHS requested a different scheduling model only to be rebuffed?) and 26 on the Austin re-build.

Also, number 29 re:  EOC testing and final exams. I believe this is an incorrect answer or I am misinterpreting the question.  Unless, the GADOE has changed their guidelines, the EOC is to serve as the final exam and serve as 20% of the student's final grade: http://www.gadoe.org/Curriculum-Instruction-and-Assessment/Assessment/Pages/Georgia-Milestones-Assessment-System.aspx
