Two Cobb County churches have been notified that they are violating building codes by hosting home-schooled students who use hybrid education programs.
Driving the news: In a July 14 letter, Fire Marshal Nicholas Dawe informed Macland Baptist Church in Powder Springs and Christ Episcopal Church in Kennesaw that his office received complaints that they were hosting "private schools without a certificate of occupancy."
What they're saying: Cobb County spokesperson Ross Cavitt, who said no citations were issued, told Axios that the Fire Marshal's Office is working with both churches to help them get into compliance.
The other side: The Institute for Justice, which advocates for educational choice, sent Cobb County a letter stating that its actions violate a 2021 law passed by the Georgia General Assembly that prohibits governments from restricting "learning pods," which involve parents grouping their children together to learn under the supervision of an instructor or tutor.
St. John The Baptist Hybrid serves 97 home-schooled students and provides instruction Monday through Wednesday at Christ Episcopal Church, according to the Institute.
