Under a preliminary plan to relieve overcrowding at Inman Middle School, Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Erroll B. Davis Jr. proposes to expand Centennial Place Elementary School by adding 6th through 8th grades.
The proposal, which Davis plans to formally present to the Atlanta Board of Education at its August or September meeting, also includes a physical expansion of Inman Middle by 10,000 to 12,000 square feet.
He outlined his plans in July 26 letter sent to the Inman Middle Task Force.
The plan also calls for demolishing Walden Middle School in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood and convert the site into play fields for Inman Middle and Grady High schools.
As outlined, Davis told the task force the plan eliminates a need for sixth grade academy in the Grady schools cluster.
