DeKalb school board likely to remain at nine members for now

Senate moves to delay a move to shrink the school board

DeKalb school board likely to remain at nine members for now

The DeKalb County school board would remain nine members, at least for the near term, under a Senate bill sponsored by Sen. Fran Millar (R-Dunwoody).

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Senate bill would delay a law that would shrink the school board from nine members to seven.

The law, passed last year, created a problem because school board members cannot be removed from the districts mid-term.
