    Congratulations Kim Gocke and Cross Keys Foundation, teachers and students of Brookhaven. A long road is getting shorter.

    Yes we are very pleased Cross keys will get a new school, long overdue. However, We are skeptical at Chamblee High School of Dr Green being able to push through the expansions required in this given the plans is still not building enough capacity in Region 1. Chamblee Middle school and Chamblee High are among the best in Georgia and Cchs is nationally recognized. The current plan to add 600 seats to a very undersized campus puts students and learning at great risk. And it will impact the city of chamblee. All of Brookhaven should care as our strong schools have been a big part of our success. I appeal to the city leadership of Brookhaven, chamblee and doraville to demand that Dekalb schools does not do harm in the short term but instead more adequately builds for the long-term. Another new high school will be needed shortly so why not move on this now instead of doing harm to CCHS. County planners did not ever engage with our community directly when making these plans and pldesigned the plan for just one cluster. This process was not a good one for earning our trust.

    Will John Lewis Elementary feed into Cross Keys or Chamblee? Does anyone know what the districting map looks like?

    Yep. Worst school district in Georgia. Only DCSS would take one of the few bright spots in Dekalb County and do irreparable harm to it. Screw DCSS.

    I would expect that John Lewis will start out as a Cross Keys feeder (and reliever of the overcrowding at Woodward and Montclair); but there is supposed to be a separate redistricting discussion once the new HS/MS capacity comes on line. See this FAQ, Question #12: http://www.dekalbschoolsga.org/e-splost/files/2016/11/FAQ_20161118__.pdf

    Couldn’t be further from the truth. I just don’t like what DCSS is doing to Chamblee High School. We’ve worked hard to make it a great school. There is no room to expand CCHS without eliminating sports fields and creating a traffic nightmare. There needs to be a fourth high school in Doraville with its own single feeder school. DCSS has repeatedly failed the citizens of Dekalb County and keeps doing so. We need smaller school systems that are locally accountable to the citizens in each local area. This plan was developed without properly engaging with citizens in our area to obtain our feedback.
