This one should be no surprise to any, but it’s always nice to know where we are in the process.
On the docket for Tuesday night’s Decatur School Board meeting, approving a resolution that would reopen Westchester as a K-3 elementary school starting in fall 2014. According to a summary by Director of Operations Jason Ware, the resolution is needed now to move forward with a getting a new certificate of occupancy from the Georgia Department of Education.
As to what kind of K-3 Westchester will be, that decision is still being weighed. Asst. Superintendent Thomas Van Soleon told me a few weeks back that the Board will examine “the work product of our Master Planning consultant at the March 12 meeting”. So I guess we should know more in the relatively recent future.
