The Decatur School Board meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and will talk about a $58 million plan to renovate Decatur High and rebuild Renfroe Middle School.
In the agenda for the Tuesday school board meeting that's posted online, Superintendent Phyllis Edwards doesn't make a recommendation about what the board should do, as she usually would.
Instead, she asks the board for guidance.
The option favored by consultants and the administration would cost about $58 million and require a Nov. 5 bond referendum.
The expansions are needed because of enrollment at Decatur High and Renfroe Middle is expected to double by 2017.
The school system conducted several public meetings at which the expansion plans were discussed. To see transcriptions of the meetings, a list of FAQs and a video of one presentation, go to the City Schools of Decatur webpage.
The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Westchester building at 758 Scott Blvd. A work session will be held 4:30-6 p.m.
