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 New Albany South Tippah Union County (NASTUC) Alternative School exists to help students who have struggled in the traditional school setting.
Our goal is to help students learn effective coping mechanisms in a regimented environment to ensure their success as they transition back to their school settings. Our learning environment is also designed to keep students current in their courses of study as they work to return to their schools of origin.
Students and parents need to recognize that misbehavior and/or deviation from our standardized routines at NASTUC will not be tolerated.
Good citizenship is based on the recognition and respect of the rights of others. Students must at all times conduct themselves in a manner that the rights and privileges of others are respected and not violated.
