DeKalb Schools 2018 – 2020 Calendar

Each school year, DeKalb County School District convenes a group of stakeholders to form a committee charged with exploring calendar options. The 2018-2020 Calendar Committee included representation from the following stakeholder groups: parents, students, school-level staff, principals, district-level staff, and community members.
Who is on the calendar committee? I asked the administration 6 weeks ago who was on the calendar committee. The administration replied saying “Due to the nature of the task, Calendar Committee members have been assured anonymity from the Central Office level.” I replied to the administration saying that information was subject to Open Records Requests as dictated by state law. The administration replied to me saying they weren’t answering any more questions until after the holidays. I still haven’t heard back.
