After taking into account the community’s feedback, a steering committee has proposed two new options to reconfigure Decatur’s elementary schools.

Now City Schools of Decatur wants feedback on those options.

CSD today launched its second community survey regarding the two new options. To take the survey, click here.

To quickly recap, those options are:

1) Turn all of City Schools of Decatur’s current K-3 schools into K-2 schools, make the 4th and 5th grade academy a 3-5 school and build a second 3-5 school. Another notable aspect of this plan would be retaining College Heights as an early childhood learning center.

2)  Keep the current K-3 configuration while building a new 4-5 Academy.

The reconfiguration is part of a plan to keep up with CSD’s ever-increasing enrollment.

The survey closes on April 23 and the School Board plans to make a decision at its May meeting.
