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:


Focus Schools




Anderson Babb Mt. Zion
Brown M.D. Roberts Mundy's Mill
Church St. Morrow  
James Jackson Riverdale  
Roberta T. Smith    
Thurgood Marshall    

Focus Schools are 10% of Title I schools that have the largest within-school gaps between the highest-achieving subgroup or subgroups and the lowest-achieving subgroup or subgroups or, at the high school level, have the largest within-school gaps in graduation rates (within-school-gaps Focus School). They can also be Title I high schools with a graduation rate less than 60 percent over a number of years that are not identified as a Priority School (low-graduation-rate Focus School). The Focus schools will remain in focus status for 3 consecutive years.

Flexible Learning Programs (FLP) will be tailored to the needs of the academically at-risk students in a school in order to provide assistance for students to achieve proficiency in relation to the state academic content standards. Flexible Learning Programs are not repetitive in the teaching strategies that are utilized with the students during regular instructional/classroom time. FLP students will receive services twice a week or on Saturday. Transportation will be provided for all FLP students.
