The State Board of Education meeting, set for Thursday at 8 a.m., in regards to the DeKalb County School Board is still a go.

Matt Cardoza, director of communications for the state BOE, confirmed that since the Fulton County Superior Court Judge Kelly A. Lee halted DeKalb's attempt to stop the meeting, that it will in fact happen as planned.

At the meeting, the state board is supposed to decide whether or not to recommend to Gov. Nathan Deal the removal of all nine DeKalb school board members.

Last year, Deal removed local school board members in Miller County after the state board made its recommendation.

The meeting will be at 205 Jesse Hill Jr. Drive, SE, Atlanta, East Tower, 20th floor.
