What we do...
The Alternative Education Programs provide a variety of
educational options for students, including smaller class sizes,
online education, blended learning settings and traditional
classroom instruction. The programs focus on the students as
individuals and develop plans to ensure that the students will be
successful. All of the alternative programs offer additional
supports to students including on-site counseling and social work
services. Discipline is addressed through positive reinforcement
and behaviors are assessed to determine the underlying causes
in order to return the students to a focus on learning. Mediations,
parent meetings, wrap-around services and one-on-one student
services are all methods by which needs are addressed to
ensure students remain in school and have access to learning.
How can we help?
Some of the programs allow the districts to maintain their
students while also allowing them access to unique
programming that will address their needs as they relate to
mental health, academic struggles, and credit recovery.
Movement throughout the alternative programs helps to ensure
the most appropriate placement for the students.Sean Sich - Mahoning Unlimited Classroom (MUC)
