DeKalb District 428′s request for modular classroom to remain at Littlejohn Elementary receives initial OK

DeKalb panel action Monday, if upheld by the City Council, allows the leadership in DeKalb schools to plan for the elimination of the modular classroom in two years, when it is anticipated that the new elementary school planned for the city’s north side will come on line.

Tammy Carson, DeKalb District 428's director of facility and safety operations, delivers a report to the DeKalb Planning and Zoning Commission during its May 15, 2023, meeting.

“It’s in my neighborhood. It’s been fine for years. It’ll be good not to have one because that’s better for everybody in the school.”
