Welcome to FLANC!
I'm pleased to welcome you to Focus Learning Academy of Northern Columbus (FLANC) for the 2022-2023 school year. All of us at FLANC will be working with you to make this school year an exciting and productive one. We will make every effort to ensure the academic and social growth of our students. Our combined efforts will determine the progress of our students.
Our goal is to provide a learning environment that allows each student to achieve its academic potential and excel in state testing standards. We are proud to report to you that our school community has achieved marked academic success in science, math, and social studies last year. We plan to build on that success this year by improving our student behavior and investing in learning aides, including supplemental curriculum and heavy emphasis on reading and academic language.
Our website has important school information including the handbook which is written for the parents, students and staff. It is an important reference tool that describes the procedures, practices and expectations of the school. You can also find the school calendar, uniform policy, and other relevant information. Please read it carefully as a guide to successful involvement in all aspects of school life. Parents, students, and staff will be informed of any changes to the school policy in advance.
On behalf of Focus Learning Academy of Northern Columbus, staff, and Board of Directors, welcome, good luck, and God speed.
Abdi Farah, Superintendent
We value all of our students, staff, and administrators – for both the visible and invisible qualities that make each person unique. We believe that each person brings perspective and experience to the mosaic of our school. We strive to create a welcoming environment, including diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in everything we do. At Focus Learning Academy, we believe everyone should be treated equally, regardless of age, race, color, national or ethnic origin, native language, citizenship, religion, disability, sex, marital status, pregnancy, military or veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, or expressed gender identity.
