In order to lead rewarding lives and be contributing citizens, all students who enter the Alternative Education Center will be given the opportunity to earn credit in core subjects necessary to be successful in completing their appropriate education program and be prepared to compete for employment and/or continue their education.
The Alternative Education Center provides RE-3(J) students an opportunity to earn credit in core subjects in non-traditional setting. All Alternative Education Center students understand that the expectation is for them to attain standards and pass proficiency tests in all assigned subjects and to then transition back to regular education.
All Alternative Education Center referrals will be considered on an individual basis through an in-depth student case study.
A student who meets the following criteria may be eligible to receive services from the Alternative Education Center:

Note: At the end of the school year a list of students whom the AEC staff feels should return the following school year is complied and shared with the counselors and administrators. They are referred at that time to return to the program.
