There is a lot going on in the world that is causing many to pause. As we try to understand what our new normal will be post-pandemic, we are learning that what was once accepted, is not being accepted. With that in mind, let’s take it the recent story from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution by Cassidy Alexande.
Two East Atlanta parents want to send their child to Atlanta Public Schools instead of DeKalb after their property was recently annexed by the city. But a state law says the property is still part of DeKalb’s school district.
Annexation is governed by O.C.G.A. Title 36, Chapter 36 (§ 36-36-1 et seq.) That chapter describes three main types of annexation: the 100 percent method, the 60 percent method, and annexation by resolution and referendum. Property can also be annexed by local Act of the General Assembly.
