The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) will wrap up its series of public input meetings in September on proposed options to address changes in the E-SPLOST budget due to construction costs increases. District officials presented the proposed options to the Board of Education on July 8.

A key part of the proposed options is a potential referendum to approve a general obligation (“GO”) bond issue to complete the current E-SPLOST program and to complete additional projects to address urgent facility needs. The bond would range between $222 million and $265 million, officials said.

The district held public meetings at Clarkston, Chamblee and Miller Grove high schools in August. The final meetings will be held at:

  • Columbia High School, Sept. 4, 7 p.m.
  • Lakeside High School, Sept. 10, 7 p.m.
