Cobb schools chooses IE2 system

Cobb County Schools Board of Education took the next step Wednesday to become an Educational Excellence System that will give the district flexibility and more local control. The board in a unanimous vote agreed to submit a five-year contract to the State Board of Education for the IE2 operating system.

The board chose the IE2 system instead of status quo or charter systems to also keep $44 million in state waivers in place.

The new system won’t change Title I or other federal programs.
