Raywid, Mary Anne
This directory presents the names and addresses of 2,500 public alternative schools and programs serving secondary school-age children in the United States and three Canadian provinces (Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta). The addresses are listed alphabetically by state, with the Canadian entries in a separate section at the end. Each school or program listed has been assigned a six-digit number; the first two digits indicate the state (numbered in alphabetical order), the next three designate the school in the order it was located, and the final digit indicates the school type, where discernible: 0 = unspecified, 1 = senior high, 2 = junior high, 3 = middle school, 4 = continuation school, 5 = special population school (special populations may be pregnant teenagers, special education students, and students in punitive programs), 6 = combined junior-senior high, 7 = elementary through senior high, 8 = elementary through junior high. The list will be updated periodically. (TE)
