Six Powerful Practices for Alternative Education Programs
Maillet, Andre L.
Preventing School Failure, v61 n3 p234-238 2017
Alternative schools can provide all students, especially those with challenging behaviors, low motivation, poor attendance, failing grades, or those afraid to even walk into the school building, with an engaging and enriching educational experience. Through designing, leading, and serving students as an administrator of an alternative middle school reengagement center in a large suburban district, I have identified six powerful practices as essential pieces to the academic and behavioral success of the students. This article seeks to demonstrate how effective use of these six ideas can transform any alternative program.
