SPLOST and the School District Master Plan

In 2010, the DeKalb County School District initiated a master planning process called "Vision 2020." This goal of this process was to review the use of all current and future facilities to ensure the district operated its facilities in the most effective and efficient manner to support student success. The visioning process included public meetings, reviews of school boundaries and projected enrollments, on site technical building inspections, and the recording of all information and data from the process.
