As City Schools of Decatur continues to build outward to handle its expanding enrollment, it is also reconsidering how its elementary schools are configured.

Currently, all of CSD’s elementary schools are K-3 schools that feed into a 4th and 5th grade academy. A recent report from a School Facilities Task Force recommended CSD alter the configuration to five K-2 schools and three 3-5 schools or building an additional 4-5 school.

But are you one of the community members who thinks all schools should be K-5? Here’s your chance to be heard.

CSD is holding a community meeting on March 13 to discuss the configuration of its elementary schools. It begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be held at the Decatur High cafeteria, located at 310 N. McDonough Street.

“This engagement session will be an opportunity for community members to participate in a facilitated discussion to provide valuable feedback to the Board of Education,” the event announcement says. “In addition, the committee will post an online survey to solicit further input after the meeting.”
