DeKalb County School District (DCSD) is Georgia’s third largest school system, serving just under 100,000 students, 139 schools and centres, and employing 16,242 staff. In 2016, a decision was taken to undertake a digital transformation of its schools, in a bid to boost the educational experience for every stakeholder.
