NAPPS Meeting Wednesday, September 21

NAPPS will hold its first meeting of the year on Wednesday, September 21st, at 6:30 PM at the Sutton Middle School Northside Drive Campus. There will be a roundtable discussion of Senate Bill 133 - the "Opportunity School District" Constitutional Amendment which will appear on the November 2016 general election ballot.

If passed, the OSD legislation would allow for State takeover of local schools deemed failing by an established set of metrics. While none of our North Atlanta cluster schools are currently at risk for takeover, State takeover of other APS schools could impact the District's budget and ultimately cluster funding. Please join us and educate yourself on this critical issue and its impact on Georgia Public Schools.

For background please see the following article from Georgia Trend.
