The DeKalb County School System may be looking to sell unused land around the now-defunct Briarcliff High School on North Druid Hills Road to plug a budget gap.
The school system has been speaking with a broker representing the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, which wants to build a health care facility on 12 to 15 acres in a deal that would go for about $800,000 to $1 million, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
From the story:
Zimmerman said he first approached the school board about a year ago, but found no interest. Now, with their budget in disarray, school officials are taking his calls. DeKalb is facing a tax increase and cuts to its teaching staff to close a potential deficit of $73 million next year.
There's a bunch of good stuff in the AJC's story, including some of school board member Paul Womack's concerns, so check it out. Presently, the school's primary use seems to be a home base for Teen Wolf, the MTV show that .
