ESEA Flexibility Waiver

Notification of ESEA Flexibility Waiver School Status Parent Letter


Flexible Learning Program



The Georgia department of Education (GADOE) submitted to the U.S. Department of Education (US ED) an application requesting flexibility through waivers of ten Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) requirements and their associated, regulatory, administrative and reporting requirements. On February 9, 2012, Georgia's Elementary and Secondary education Act of 1965 (ESEA) Flexibility Waiver was approved by the US ED. The waiver allows Clayton County School System greater flexibility in designing a flexible learning program tailored to the needs of each Focus and Alert school.

The Flexible Learning Program (FLP) is an alternative supplemental academic intervention that allows for additional academic support, particularly in the areas of Language Arts and Mathematics. During the 2012 - 2013 school year, Clayton County Public Schools Focus and Alert Schools will implement the Flexible Learning Program (FLP) in the following schools:
