From the DeKalb Neighbor…
City Schools of Decatur, which begins classes Monday, has doubled in size throughout the last 10 years or so, and Superintendent Phyllis Edwards said because they only operate in a four-square-mile area, it has been a challenge to accommodate the growth.
One helpful part will be the transformation of Westchester Elementary School back to a working educational facility, after being the hub of the school system’s operations for the last 10 years.
Also, eight classrooms have been added at 4/5 Academy at Fifth Avenue; seven classes were added at Renfroe Middle School and the maintenance facility has moved to Talley Street.
Projected student enrollment is 4,364, which Edwards said does not include about 350 children from birth to age 4. The school system is at 97 percent enrollment.
The Neighbor also has a nice profile of Westchester Elementary.
