The Georgia NAACP encourages you to VOTE NO ON OSD to save our children and to protect public education against Opportunity School District (OSD) Constitutional Amendment.


A proposed amendment to the constitution that would establish an Opportunity School District of “chronically failing schools.” The Opportunity School District would be managed by a Governor-appointed Superintendent who would be given vast new powers over the use of local funding and local educational decision-making, yet be unaccountable to local taxpayers.


The following is a list of schools that may be affected: Map: Georgia’s failing schools |



Contact Governor Nathan Deal at (404) 656-1776 
Erin Hames, Deputy Chief of Staff of Policy (404) 656-1784
