Opportunity School District
GA House of Representatives recently passed Opportunity School District (OSD) legislature which will be voted upon by GA voters in this upcoming November 2016 election. Opportunity School District (OSD) would allow the state, not county, the opportunity overtake GA’s failing schools who did not meet CCRPI requirements three consecutive years in a row. A Governor-appointed Superintendent would be allowed to utilize local DeKalb County taxpayer (shareholder) dollars to manage the school without any accountability or regard to our shareholders. The GA PTA’s is not in support of this new legislature and we are also working in support of the GA PTA and Region 2 DeKalb Council of PTAs to spread the news. Please join us in a legislative forum for more information!!!!
