The alternative school program shall be operated as part of and in accordance with the
regulations applicable to the regular school program and with all requirements of the law and
guidelines of the State Department of Education. There are rules specific to NASTUC that go
beyond those that apply to students in the regular program. Students placed in the alternative
school program are subject to the policies and rules of conduct and discipline as well as any other
rules of conduct and discipline deemed appropriate by the superintendent and/or director. During
the placement time, students are not allowed on any school campus or at any school
function. (Possible exception: district school bus transportation.)
The mission of the alternative education program is to promote in the students the academic performance, behavior modification, functional skills, career education, character education, and the employability skills in a learning environment that offers high expectations and high support.
Acceptable behavior is expected of you all the time. The student and parent
must understand that rules must be followed without exception. This behavioral
school is designed to give students a second chance to stay in school and
receive Carnegie units or prepare for the General Equivalency Diploma.
At all times a teaching situation conducive to learning must be maintained.
Good citizenship is based on the respect and consideration of the rights
of others. Students are expected to conduct themselves in such a way that
the rights and privileges of others are not violated. Do not hesitate to
call me at 538-4100.
