DCSD End of Year Plan 

DeKalb County School District has announced the plan to close the 2019-2020 school year. We will end the school year 4 days early on May 15th for grades PreK-11 instead of May 21st. The End of Year Guide for Students and Families for 2019-2020 provides detailed information regarding final grade calculations, promotion/retention, summer extended learning opportunities, school year learning recovery opportunities, end of year activities, and a FAQ guide. 

We will end the year as follows:

  • Last day for Seniors will be Friday, May 8, 2020
  • Last day for PreK-11 will be Friday, May 15, 2020 (four days early than the original calendar date of May 21, 2020).
  • The week of May 11-15 will be an academic support week for seniors and their teachers. The deadline for teachers to post the senior grades is Friday, May 15th.
  • Post-planning for teachers will be the week of May 18-22 instead of originally planned May 22nd. The deadline for teachers to post PreK-11 grades is Wednesday, May 20th.

If you have yet to join the PTO - Foundation, there is still time! 


Please consider giving to the Austin Eagle Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2013 that bridges the gap between student needs and the funding received each year by the State and District.  100% of the funds raised are kept within the school for enhanced academic engagement and student support. 


This school year we are encouraging all families to consider at least $1 per day donation for each student at Austin Elementary. With 180 days in the school year, a $180 or more annual donation will directly enable the continued growth and excellence that we have come to know and love at Austin.
