At the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year, City Schools of Decatur will go from a system of K-3 elementary schools with a 4-5 academy to a system of K-2 elementary schools and two 3-5 academies.

CSD is building a new 3-5 school at Talley Street which is expected to be finished by the start of the 2019 school year. The new school will cost $22 million and will seat 750 students. The 4/5 Academy at Fifth Avenue, F.AVE, will become the other 3-5 school.

The new school at Talley Street and the new grade configuration for the elementary schools is prompting a reexamination of CSD’s elementary attendance boundaries. A survey on the first list of options closed on Feb. 28. Based on feedback from that survey, the CSD’s Elementary Boundary Planning Steering Committee is considering a revised set of options. A survey on those options will close on April 11.

To take the survey, click here. The Steering Committee is charged with developing a recommendation to present to the school board. That could happen as early as April 11.

Here are the options that are currently being considered:
