Alternative Education

Alternative Education is a comprehensive educational program delivered in a non-traditional learning environment that is distinct and separate from the existing general or special education program. The program should be developed for the purpose of addressing the individual learning, behavior and health needs of students determined by the school district to be at risk of school failure or who have been mandated for removal from general education.
