The Board recognizes that the regular school program may not be appropriate for all students and that certain students may need special programs to help them overcome attendance, academic, and/or behavioral problems.
The Board authorizes the Superintendent to provide alternative education programs for students who, in the opinion of the Superintendent, will benefit from this educational option. Participation in an alternative program does not exempt the student from adherence to school attendance rules or the Code of Conduct.
The Superintendent shall develop a plan for the alternative school and submit it to the Board for approval. The plan is to include but not necessarily be limited to:
|A.||The criteria for admission that the Board will use to approve or disapprove a student's assignment to the school
|B.||The criteria and procedures that will be used to transfer a student from the alternative school back to the regular school
|C.||A plan for evaluating the effectiveness of the alternative school and for sharing the results of the evaluation with the community
