It is time DeKalb Board of Education stopped expensive divisive litigation and focused on the needs of the students, teachers and principals in our community. Now is the time to heal and come together to support the new leadership this law provides. Now is the time to focus on earning full accreditation of SACS and improving the education of every child and in every school in DeKalb County, GA.

Jim McMahan, DCSS BOE Vice-Chair
Marshall Orson, DCSS BOE Member
Melvin Johnson, DCSS BOE Chair
Michael Thurmond, Superintendent DCSS
Withdraw Constitutional Challenge to GA School Board Removal Law

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Our Board has failed our children. Our Board has become more concerned about their job than what is best for Dekalb County. We need a Board that can work together and move us in a positive direction. The current board are at an impasse of working together. Taxpayers should not have to pay for every bit of litigation that feel is important to save their jobs. They have failed.
