    Decision 4 Decatur is a community-led effort to address the needs of the 21st century learner in our high schools.
    In 2007, the Decatur Public Schools Strategic Plan identified improving high school facilities as a high priority. Work began in February of 2009 to get community input to determine the direction of these facility improvements.
    On June 22, 2010 the Decision4Decatur Tri-Chairs presented a Power Point to the Board of Education regarding the option chosen by the community and recommended by the Tri-Chairs. To see the Power Point Presentation Click Here

    After collecting and reviewing a significant amount of community input, our Board of Education narrowed the list of options from 4 to 2:
    • Renovate both High Schools
    • Convert Stephen Decatur to one High School campus.
    See our Power Point presentation from the March 23, 2010 Board of Education Meeting.
    On June 30, our Board of Education held an open session to discuss various topics related to funding this initiative. Please watch this informative video on funding school facility improvement with sales taxes instead of property taxes:
