Alternative Schools and Programs for Public School Students at Risk of Educational Failure: 2007-08. First Look. NCES 2010-026

National Center for Education Statistics
This report provides national estimates on the availability of alternative schools and programs for students at risk of educational failure in public school districts during the 2007-08 school year. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) previously reported results from a similar survey of alternative schools and programs conducted during the 2000-01 school year (Kleiner, Porch, and Farris 2002). The estimates presented in the current report are based on an initial district survey about alternative schools and programs available to students during the 2007-08 school year and a short follow-up survey. The initial survey asked about alternative schools and programs administered by the district and covered many of the same topics included in the 2000-01 survey. The follow-up survey expanded the coverage by asking about students enrolled in the district who attended alternative schools and programs administered by an entity other than the district. Appendices include: (1) Standard Error Tables; (2) Technical Notes; and (3) Questionnaires. (Contains 32 tables and 6 footnotes.)
