The meeting will take place Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 8AM. If you are interested in attending the meeting, please complete the bottom section of this letter and return it to Pamela Stone. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please feel free to provide Pamela Stone feedback on the form that is provided regarding our school wide plan, policy and compact. A copy of our 2013-2014 title I School Wide Plan, Parent Involvement Policy and School-Parent Compact can be found on our school website here or a hard copy of all documents is available in our front office. We will present the revised version of the 2014-2015 Title I School Wide Plan and Parent Involvement Policy at The Annual Title I Parent Information Meeting. Our compact will be distributed at our Parent-Teacher Conference in October.

Hayes Elementary 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.  Hayes’ 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 Hayes Elementary FLP program addresses the subject of math. The FLP program will provide afterschool tutoring on Mondays and Thursdays to identified 3rd grade through 5th grade students.   The FLP program will provide tutoring to Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade students twice a week during the student’s specials schedule.  All of the instruction will be conducted by certified teachers. If you have more questions about the Flexible Learning Program or the ESEA waiver please click on the link below or contact Denise Walker at Hayes Elementary.
