Construction on the new school is almost complete.
Construction of a total replacement of Chamblee Charter High is nearly complete, and a “topping out” celebration was held last week.

With a capacity of 1,600 students, the Special Local Options Sales Tax project features a number of environmentally friendly features, like a white membrane roof, which reduces the cooling load in the summer, and aluminum curtain walls, which allow abundant natural light, thus reducing lighting needs.

Superintendent recommended that Chamblee Construction Remain on schedule.
A $41 million mistake in the managment of sales tax dollars threatens to halt construction at local schools, but DeKalb County Superintendent Cheryl Atkinson has proposed that construction at Chamblee Charter High School continue, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. According to the report, the mistake affects 35 building projects. Among those that would stop are renovations to the DeKalb School of the Arts and Redan and Dunwoody high schools. The $69 million construction project at Chamblee, which was funded by mostly bond money, will likely continue. The AJC reported that the shortfall primarily involves management of the last SPLOST, which was to generate $513 million from 2007 through August.
