HR 486 – Independent School Districts

Should Georgia Have New School Districts? (12/ 31/2013)
If a school district is too small, and struggles to financially support a diversity of needs for its students, the Georgia constitution allows for these small districts to consolidate into a neighboring one, so as to maximize the funding and more effectively and efficiently deliver a high quality education to its students. However, today when a supersized school district shows an inability to meet the needs of all of its students, there is no response mechanism that would allow for deconsolidation to bring an unmanageable district down to the “right size.” Until now.
