A plan for a K-5 school with about 60 children to use the Dunwoody Community Church on the Sandy Springs-Dunwoody border will be the subject of a preliminary community meeting May 24.

The applicant proposing the unnamed private school’s use at 2250 Dunwoody Club Drive is Kimberly Simpson of Smyrna, who did not respond to a phone call and email. Church Pastor Jeff Jansen said the school is separate from the church and would just be renting space, not building new facilities. He referred school-related questions to Simpson. The church currently has no school, Jansen said.

The church is inside Sandy Springs’ boundaries and the school would require a use permit from that city. Sandy Springs also requires a pre-application community meeting, which is slated for May 24, 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the church.
