Performance Learning CenterThe Marietta Performance Learning Center (PLC) is an innovative partnership between Marietta City Schools and Communities in Schools of Marietta/Cobb County. The PLC serves students who are not succeeding in a traditional school setting or are one or more years behind their peers academically and desire to complete their graduation requirements in concert with their peers. The PLC maintains a business-like learning environment where students complete assignments using an integrated online and project-based curriculum that is aligned with the Georgia Performance Standards. In addition to their classroom work, PLC students engage in service learning projects, college and career planning and exploration, leadership development, and other enrichment activities, often working with mentors who serve the center.

School social workers are assigned to every school and are trained to utilize the resources of the community to meet the needs of students and their families.
