The DeKalb County School District is exploring options to address E-SPLOST budget issues and ongoing school building conditions.The proposed options were presented to the Board of Education on July 8, 2019.

A key part of the proposed options is a potential referendum to approve a general obligation (“GO”) bond issue to complete the current E-SPLOST program and to complete additional projects to address urgent facility needs. The size of the bond would be in the range of $222 Million to $265 Million.
