 Dear McNair Astro Community,

I am thrilled to be the principal of McNair MS for the 2014-2015 school year. We have big plans for our school this year, but we know our imminent success depends heavily on our ability to successfully secure the support of our parents, business partners, and community stakeholders. With that in mind, we hope that our vision of "Preparing for Liftoff" will resonate with each of you, and our collective effort will lead to the success of all of our students.

We live in a fast-paced, technology driven world. We have students that are tech savvy and easily bored by conventional methods of education. Thus, if we want to reach them effectively, we must meet them where they are. Because of this, our staff has committed to finding innovative ways to engage our students in the learning process and provide them with the support they need to become their best selves.


Next year, we are honored to be moving into a state of the art building that will be the first of its kind in our district. It will utilize the newest and most advanced instructional tools to ignite our students' interests and facilitate professional learning and collaborative planning amongst our staff. It will usher us into a new era of high academic performance. However, we must prepare for this transition by improving our school climate and perfecting our methods of instruction now.

Please feel free to help us prepare for liftoff throughout this very exciting year. We pledge to uphold our core values of discipline, urgency, valor, and innovation to make McNair the center of community vitalization and a school that our students, teachers and parents are proud of. We cannot wait to meet you and join you in this exciting work!

In solidarity,

Luqman Abdur-Rahman

Fulton County School System SPLOST Referendum

An extension of the current sales tax • Not a property tax increase • Everyone contributes, including visitors

Fulton County School System has called for a referendum for citizens to consider the continuation of a Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST). SPLOST has funded capital needs in the Fulton County School System since 1997. Previous SPLOST programs have funded 37 new schools, 28 school additions and multiple projects such as roof replacement, HVAC renovations, floor covering replacements, surveillance camera installations and playfield enhancements.

A significant portion of SPLOST IV will be dedicated to school level and system wide enhancement of technology. SPLOST IV goes beyond bricks and mortar by funding new computers for students and teachers, distance learning in all high schools and high speed networks and Internet access. Other technology items will be incorporated to enhance student learning and provide teachers with the resources for the 21st century classroom.

Past programs have focused primarily on new schools construction due to overcrowding and to reduce the use of portables as classroom space. SPLOST IV is a little different as it will focus on renewal of existing classrooms – that includes renovations, renewal, and replacement, which comprises approximately 71% of the proposed construction budget. This program is about continued investment in our current buildings to maintain optimal conditions for learning.

In addition, SPLOST reduces debt from previous bonds, purchases furniture and equipment and replaces school buses.
