Education Supports Service Area
The Alternative Education Strategy is designed to provide opportunities for youth and young adults to obtain their High School diplomas. Alternative Education programs targets youth who are off-track, have attended multiple schools, are suspended or expelled for disruptive and/or delinquent behavior, or have generally been unsuccessful at learning in a mainstream or traditional educational environment.
DCYF allocated $1,013,000 in annual funding to two programs at two agencies for the Alternative Education Strategy.
Strategy Goals include:
To provide participants with a supported educational environment that helps prevent students from dropping out of school.
To reengage students in their education in order to assist them in getting academically on-track to graduate.
