Cobb Proposes Becoming IE2 District in 2015
By June 2015, state law requires all Georgia school districts to choose a framework for leading and operating schools. The Cobb County
School District currently saves almost $44 million annually through state waivers no longer available after July 1, 2015, unless a contract
is developed to become either a charter system or an Investing in Educational Excellence (IE2) system. The Cobb County Board of Education
will take up the IE2 proposal at its Sept. 2014 meeting.
