Dunwoody considers breaking from Dekalb schools
By The Associated Press
DUNWOODY - Parents in Dunwoody are discussing the possibly of forming their own school district, which would break away from the beleaguered DeKalb County Schools.
A meeting was held Sunday night at a local church to discuss that possibility and included state representatives and members of the Dunwoody Homeowners Association.
DeKalb County is the state's third-largest school district, serving about 99,000 students.
It was placed on probation in December by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools following a six-month investigation. The accreditation agency cited long-term leadership issues including nepotism, fiscal mismanagement, inappropriate micromanagement and intimidation within the district.
Last week Governor Nathan Deal invoked a new law to suspend two-thirds of the school board.
