Following the May 24, 2016 approval of the 2017-2022 E-SPLOST referendum by DeKalb voters (by more than a 71% vote) and extensive stakeholder engagement process, district staff presented the Superintendent’s proposed E-SPLOST project list to the Board of Education as a “first read” for its review and input on November 7, 2016. Highlighted below are a few modifications to the proposed project list as originally presented on November 7, 2016:
The Board’s approval will allow staff to immediately initiate the next steps in its detailed process to prepare for the implementation of the District’s 2017-2022 E-SPLOST Program. This process includes the development a cost loaded schedule over the next several months in support of the final Board-approved project list and bond financing to accelerate key projects within the program. Staff will immediately begin its procurement process to hire qualified professional design firms to initiate the formal design process for major construction projects. The Board will be asked to adopt a Bond Resolution at its February 2017 Board meeting and funding will be made available to accelerate the program in late February. At the March 2017 Board meeting, staff will present a comprehensive program schedule to include a full list of projects, budgets, and anticipated start and finish dates.
