Sales Contract Approved for ES #23 Land (School Opens 2022)

The Forsyth County Board of Education has approved the sales contract to purchase 42 acres of land on Castleberry Road to construct elementary #23.

The school, which will be officially named later, is projected to open in August 2022 and targeted to relieve current and future overcrowding at Whitlow ES, Vickery ES, Shiloh Point ES, and Midway ES. The funding for the land and school were approved by voters in the May 2018 bond referendum.

The site has undergone a battery of tests and risk assessments required by the Georgia Department of Education, which they have reviewed and approved. After the land purchase is complete, the school district will present a detailed sketch plat to the Forsyth County government and hold a public participation meeting. Until then, questions can be sent to Tim Amerson at
