Alternative Schools

Alternative schools offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students. Alternative schools include schools or potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems.
