from Terry Nall
Thanks to everyone involved with securing DeKalb County Board of Education approval for dual accreditation for all of our county high schools. Inexplicably, it proved to be an uphill battle and near impossible at times. Special thanks go to John Coleman (District 1) and Marshall Orson (District 2) for their tireless diligence to make this possible. Last night’s final vote was 7-2. Campbell (District 5) and Morley (District 7) opposed. Your countywide support was heard loud and clear.
The timeline calls for site visits to individual high schools in February 2014, findings presented to GAC in March 2014, and an effective accreditation date retroactive to today, July 1, 2013.
This is a great day for all DeKalb County students, but is especially so for those currently in or soon to be in high school.
