Hayes is excited to have such a dedicated teacher

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.
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 from certified to
identified students from the DCP Education, LLC (a Sylvan
franchise). All of
the instruction will be conducted by certified teachers.

Program or the ESEA waiver, please click
