Portland Public Schools Supported Private Alternative School Programs: Albina Youth Opportunity School, Lents Education Center, Open Meadow Learning Center. Administrative Summary, 1982-83.
Three off campus private alternative schools have been supported, in part, by the Portland, Oregon, Public Schools. The students, mostly high school age, are largely dropouts or on the verge of dropping out of school. Many were referred because of behavior, attendance, or other discipline problems. At least half of the students in each school have had juvenile court involvement, and, for some, enrollment is a probationary requirement. Information is provided for each school on facilities and resources, staff, students, program, and student achievement. The single most significant feature of the schools is the special kind of relationship among staff members and especially with the disenchanted youths. Students receive attention that is consistent in time and quality, and that their homes or regular schools did not provide. (MLF)
