Special Needs Schools Haven Academy includes two schools: Fitzhugh Lee serves the ADD/ADHD, and other learning and behavioral disabilities for elementary school. After elementary they go to Hawthorne. Students with autism and mental health issues go to Fitzhugh Lee and its satellites, regular schools with classes as part of the system,[clarification needed] until graduation from high school. Middle school and high school Students with ADD/ADHD and other behaviorally challenged students attend Hawthorne. The school furnishes the small class size and structure. Other attendees include juvenile delinquents than exhibit behavioral problems, but are not ADD/ADHD. Former schools Clarkdale Elementary School was a Cobb County school that opened in the 1960s and closed on September 21, 2009, due to the massive flooding in Georgia that day, which submerged the school to the ceiling in the waters of nearby Noses Creek. Water began rising ankle-deep onto the grounds as the children were being evacuated. The school housed about 450 students. These students are currently attending Compton Elementary (K-2) and Austell Intermediate (3-5). A new Clarkdale Elementary will open in either 2011 or 2012 near Cooper Middle School (although FEMA declared the original site acceptable[4]), while the previous building is still awaiting demolition, a delay which the local neighborhood has complained about. State funding (a bond for 20% of the cost of replacement) was vetoed by Governor Sonny Perdue on procedural grounds in early June 2010.[5] Most of the remainder will be convered by insurance and leftover SPLOST funds.[6] At least one other school has been demolished. The original Blackwell Elementary School in the Blackwells community was built in the 1920s on Canton Road (old Georgia 5), as the county's first consolidated school. The historic schoolhouse (and all of its later additions) was destroyed in summer 1997 and was closed for a year, while a new replacement was built on the same site, in an institutional style much like the plain architecture of an office park rather than a historic school. Controversies Power to Learn laptop initiative In 2005, the District implemented a technology initiative called Power to Learn, which would supply individual laptop computers to students for use in classroom. The initiative was to be initially funded by a portion of the special-purpose local-option sales tax (SPLOST) funds approved by Cobb voters in the 2003 referendum and earmarked for technology improvements. The first of three proposed phases of the initiative was approved by the Board of Education in April 2005, authorizing purchase of Apple laptops for all teachers, upgrades of middle school business labs, and the establishment of four high school pilot sites to test and evaluate individual student laptop use. Former county commissioner Joseph "Butch" Thompson filed a lawsuit against the Board of Education on May 31, 2005. The lawsuit charged that Cobb voters did not specifically authorize the program in the 2003 SPLOST vote. On July 29, 2005, Superior Court Judge S. Lark Ingram mandated the Board of Education to use technology funds as specified in SPLOST II and ordered a permanent injunction to halt the Power to Learn initiative. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution quoted Ingram, "The ruling had nothing to do with the merits of the program. But fair notice of such use was not given to the public when the referendum for [the sales tax] was held'". Board chair Kathleen Johnstone announced on Aug. 1 that the laptop program "was no longer an option". The Board voted on August 25, 2005 to appeal the ruling, which was thrown out by the Georgia Supreme Court. Superintendent Redden resigns The Board of Education hired New York-based auditing firm Kessler International in July 2005 to investigate the bidding process for the initiative, amidst allegations that the bidding process that selected Apple Computer as supplier for the initiative violated state law. The Board received the Kessler report on August 14, 2005. The report indicated flaws in the selection process that were not in line with state procurement policies. Superintendent Gen. Joseph Redden offered a page-by-page rebuttal of the audit report to the Board on August 17, 2005. Redden announced his resignation on August 24, 2005. Grand jury investigation Upon the request of the Board of Education, Cobb District Attorney Pat Head was granted an order on October 6, 2005 to empanel a special grand jury to investigate the bidding process. On April 19, 2007, the 25-member grand jury released its report and suggested no criminal charges be filed. The report was critical of the school district's procurement processes, and suggested that the district provide greater definition and clarity to its purchasing procedures. The release of the grand jury report concluded the laptop initiative saga. The school district began refreshing outdated computer systems throughout the county in early 2007, precisely as outlined in SPLOST II. Selman v. Cobb County School District Main article: Selman v. Cobb County School District In 2005, Cobb County School District voted to put stickers on textbooks with a message including the admonition cautioning students that, "evolution is only a theory". Plaintiffs brought suit on separation of church and state grounds, with the initial trial finding for the plaintiffs. Cobb County School District appealed and the verdict was overturned and remanded for a new trial, at which time plaintiffs and Cobb County School District reached an out-of-court settlement, with the district agreeing to remove the stickers. Teacher sexual contact with student A Cobb County teacher was discovered to have had sex with a 17-year old student. When brought to trial, the teacher pled that the student had consented. This defense was allowed by the Superior Court judge and upheld by the Georgia Supreme Court in 2009. This led the Georgia legislature to pass a statute in 2010 making it a crime for a teacher to have sexual relations with a student.[7] References ^ "Free US Geocoder". http://geocoder.us.
