East Cobb Middle has been identified as a
Focus school according to the definition contained in the
Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) waiver granted to
the State of Georgia in February of 2012. East Cobb
Middle’s Focus school designation is due to an achievement gap
between student groups identified from 2010-2011 school data.
Focus schools must offer a Flexible Learning Program (FLP)
designed to increase academic achievement. The East Cobb
Middle FLP program addresses the subject of math. The FLP
program will provide additional math instruction from certified
teachers during the school day to identified students. If
you have more questions about the Flexible Learning Program or
the ESEA waiver please click on the link below or call Leetonia
Young at 770-578-2740.
