Small Group Focus Questions
- What traffic concerns do you have that may impact the safe and timely transportation of students to and from
- What community areas, such as homeowners or civic associations, should be considered as intact
- What residential development are you concerned will influence the enrollment forecasts?
- To better balance over-crowding in the Dunwoody Cluster, should the new Austin ES open with portable
classrooms next Fall? Why or why not?
I thought the plan was for “a new 900-seat prototype elementary school”. Since when did the new Austin ES and Doraville United ES become 950 seat elementary schools?
Let me know if you have any other thoughts or questions

Aug 24, 2018 – The DeKalb Schools Operations Division was informed last week that we are experiencing a delay in the opening of the new Austin ES. This has shifted the opening of the school from August 2019 (start of the first semester of 2019-2020 SY) to January 2020 (start of the second semester of 2019-2020 SY).
