Remember that whole thing where East Decatur Station partners were interested in putting a school on the property? And how the AJC then asked the Superintendent about it and she said she’d “definitely like to meet” them?
Well, it looks like the AJC may have played matchmaker for CSD and East Decatur Station. A school on the site is now closer to becoming a reality, according to the news org. Of course it all depends on whether the Go Bond passes in November.
The AJC reports…
Decatur’s school board approved entering into a contract for purchasing four acres on Talley Street, where City Schools Decatur hopes to build a new school. The vote came after an executive session last week and the news was confirmed Monday afternoon by City Attorney Robert Wilson.
…Superintendent Phyllis Edwards has said the school system will need two new schools, a K-3 and 4/5 Academy, by 2018-19 or earlier. Talley Street has room for one school, though what type hasn’t been determined. The land sits directly across from an AT&T facility which the city hopes to eventually purchase and turn into a lake and park.
