Facilities Steering Committee

The Athens City School District has an opportunity to get matching funds for building renovations and/or construction in the next year.  To determine the future of ACSD facilities, the School Board has convened a Facilities Steering Committee.  They will meet through early 2017 and make a recommendation to the School Board by mid February.  Discussions will include the overall format and breakdown of buildings, how grades and geographic areas should be distributed, which current buildings will be retained, whether inter and intra district enrollment will continue into the future, and what new buildings are required.

The committee meetings are open to the public for observation, and since their decisions will have a profound impact on the future of ACSD and the community as a whole, we strongly encourage you to get involved.

The ACSD Steering Committee Page has additional information about the committee and its objectives, along with published minutes from committee meetings.  Additional materials can be found on the ACSD Steering Committee Additional Resources page.
