About This School
Alternative schools are public schools that 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 for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems. See Distance Learning/Corresp. Center's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Distance Learning/Corresp. Center had 128 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Alaska average is 16 students per full-time equivalent teacher.
