Click here to read the PAC's letter in response to the DeKalb County Board of Education's decisions that were made regarding the Austin Elementary redistricting at last week's meeting.

A BIG thank you to our amazing Chesnut Teachers and support staff on Chesnut being recognized as a 2019 Georgia Board of Education School of Distinction.

On behalf of all Chesnut Parents, thank you for your dedication and hard work every day!


The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) rewards successful schools and school districts for significant progress in improving student achievement and/or significant progress in closing the achievement gap. Distinguished Schools are among the Top 5% Title I School-Wide Program (SWP) and Top 5% Title I Targeted Assisted (TA) schools in the state that have the highest absolute performance for all student groups based on statewide assessments.



On November 20th DeKalb County submitted their staff recommendation for the redistricting for Dunwoody Cluster Elementary schools due to the opening of the new Austin Elementary school.

The staff recommendation keeps the vast majority of the Chesnut attendance area intact thereby allowing Chesnut to maintain instructional capacity and resources.


PAC provided a formal response to the redistricting options after the second community input meeting: Click here for the response letter


After reviewing the letter please take a few minutes to complete the county’s final survey (link below), that is designed to collect input from stakeholders in the Dunwoody Cluster community and will provide community feedback into the redistricting decisions. The survey will close at midnight December 8, 2019.
