February 22 – February 26
MAP testing continues this week, February 22, 23 and 24 in the morning or afternoon block. Due to many of our teachers administering MAP testing in person, there will be no live instruction on Feb. 22, 23, and 24th from homeroom teachers. Your students will have assignments to complete in Google Classroom on those days. Connections (Art, Music, STEM, and PE) teachers will be assisting with arrival, dismissal and monitoring during MAP testing; therefore, classes will have asynchronous assignments as well. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask your child’s teacher.
Also, each child will need a bring their school issued device, headphones, a quiet activity to be completed durig down times, such as a book to read, coloring book.
You are invited to attend the State of the District Address on Tuesday, February 23, 2021, at 5:30 pm.
The program will be a “drive-in celebration” at 4550 Greer Circle in Stone Mountain. The parking lot will open at 4:15 p.m.

In addition, the seven regional superintendents will give their State of the Region Addresses via live webinars later that evening. Information will also be sent to parents by each regional superintendent.

Comprehensive Master Plan
The team developing the Comprehensive Master Plan will hold an informational session on February 25, 2021, from 6-7:30 pm. You will get an overview of the planning process, how you can participate, and what to expect in the months ahead.
Not sure what the Comprehensive Master Plan (aka CMP) is all about?
Read more here: https://www.dekalbschoolsga.org/comprehensive-master-plan/
This CMP process includes an evaluation of all school and administrative facilities, as well as the infrastructure to support the educational mission of the District. This process includes gathering data about school facilities that will be used to develop priorities for the next Educational Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (E-SPLOST) project list.
In short, the CMP will help DCDS make decisions about building or renovating schools and facilities, redistricting, where to have programs, etc.
Questions for the team can be submitted in advance at this email address: CMP@dekalbschoolsga.org
