Performance Learning Center

The 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 Work Services

School social workers are a vital part of the educational process by using their expertise to promote the healthy development of the whole child and assist students and parents in obtaining the help and resources available to achieve their goals. Not only do they collaborate with the entire educational staff to remove barriers to academic success but they provide direct and indirect services to address issues including social, emotional, and mental health. They also work with various community agencies to provide tools for students and their families to function and be productive in every phase of school and social life.
