A state hearing that could result in the suspension of all nine members of the DeKalb County School Board will proceed as scheduled.
Attorney Bob Wilson filed a lawsuit yesterday to obtain a temporary restraining order to stop Thursday's scheduled hearing by the Georgia State Board of Education on whether to recommend to Governor Deal that the members of the DeKalb board be replaced. But today Judge Kelly Lee denied the request because it wasn’t submitted five days in advance, as required by law.
The DeKalb County School District has filed a motion with the Superior Court of Fulton County asking for a temporary restraining order that would prevent the DeKalb school board's scheduled hearing before the State Board of Education on Thursday.
The DeKalb school system was placed on probation in December by its accrediting agency, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, for what SACS called board governance issues that were preventing major decisions from being made.
