Alternative Education is designed to meet the needs of at-risk students who are not succeeding in the traditional setting. Students are provided with a variety of options that can lead to graduation and are supported by services essential to success. Find a great summary at the IDOE website.
- If an alternative education program is funded by the state, there are requirements they must meet regarding teacher/student ratios and minimum hours.
- Also, students in alternative schools must have an ISP.
- The staff at alternative schools can feel isolated at times so it is good to reach out and maintain relationships with our local options so we are familiar when we refer students.
- The high school students generally really appreciate it. They enjoy the smaller class size and lack of social influences during the school day. They know that it helps them stay out of trouble, and some admit to acting out because they feel picked on and that doesn’t happen as much in the smaller setting.
