Alternative Education Programs for Disruptive Students.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton.
This guide provides information about various types of alternative education programs that address the educational and behavioral needs of disruptive students. The programs suggested are aimed at students whose behavior is so disruptive that they must be removed from classes or from the school for varying lengths of time. These programs provide disruptive students with the special support and assistance they need to develop more responsible patterns of behavior, while helping them succeed in school and preventing them from interfering with the learning of others. The document has three major sections. The first derives a conceptual framework for developing alternative educational programs from the literature. The second describes individual program models identified as effective by the National Diffusion Network and the National School Resource Network. The third and last section describes a planning and implementation approach that might be applied to both program model selection and program implementation at the local level. The guide includes a list of general references and references on other programs for "at risk" students. (PGD)
