The Dunwoody Chamblee Parents' Council (DCPC) brings parents, principals, teachers, school board members, school officials, and legislators together to discuss topics that affect public schools in our community.
We hope you've been having a great summer. Time flies too quickly!
Here's a quick update to let you know where we are at with the Dunwoody Chamblee Parents' Council...
1. Our first meeting will be Tuesday, September 30th at 7pm in the Cole Auditorium at Georgia Perimeter College in Clarkston (right off of I-285 and centrally located). For this meeting, we will be partnering with Parent Councils United (PCU) - which is a larger organization with representatives from all the DeKalb County Parent Councils. Superintendent Michael Thurmond will be speaking and giving an update on our DeKalb County School System. We think having him speak in front of all the councils, at the same time, will be a great thing. We will all get the same message and facts and will be able to share our questions and concerns and get answers that everyone will hear.
More details will be coming soon, but for now, please let your school staff and parents know so they can reserve the date and get it on the calendars.
2. We've been keeping the DCPC School Rep contact info current as best we can but we know there will be lots of changes for the 2014-15 school year. Please take a moment to update your school contacts online and please highlight anyone new that we need to add to our email list. Click here for the link (the link is not public, email us privately for the information). Thanks!
3. We've had some turn-over on our Board and are in need of volunteers to help fill a few positions. If you can volunteer (or know someone we should ask) please reply to this email and we'll contact you with more details.
4. We are still working on the remaining calendar. Based on the survey results and parent interests, we are planning to change things around this year. We understand that school calendars are being set now and we are doing the best we can to get the dates/times confirmed. We'll let you know as soon as it is finalized.
Thanks so much and again, please contact us if you can serve on the Board this year.
Sorry for the short notice - our Wed, May 7th Dunwoody Chamblee Parents' Council meeting is cancelled. The new Chamblee Auditorium is not yet finished and we've had trouble securing another location. We also ran into schedule conflicts with most of our board and our scheduled speakers.
Again, we are sorry for the short notice and any inconvenience this may have caused.
We will be sending out a survey soon to help us better plan meeting topics and schedules for next year.
Thanks and we hope everyone enjoys these last few weeks of school.
