Getting a Fresh Start
Alternative Schools
Alternative Programs are additional educational settings offered to students who, for various reasons, are having difficulty in the traditional educational setting. The Alternative Programs of The School District of Greenville County will provide short term intervention programs that offer a structured learning environment designed to address the academic and social needs of at-risk students.
  • All students are capable of learning. All students are individuals with unique needs. Students have a desire to be successful. Students deserve respect, acceptance and encouragement. Students should be provided a safe environment for learning. Students need a balanced curriculum that provides opportunities for academic and social development. Education is the responsibility of the home, school, student, and community.
  • Enable students to integrate successfully into the regular school setting.

Faculty Profiles:
Chris Dunbar Paints Painful Portrait of Students in Alternative Schools In his new book, Chris Dunbar, Jr. describes a desolate and almost surreal corner of the educational system, a place strewn with damaged young lives where on any given morning a police officer shows up at school intent on arresting a student. If not an arrest, then a fight or some heated confrontation erupts and profanity is so prevalent as to seem normal. All this takes place before 8 a.m. In class, Dunbar writes, the students “sit in front of you with a disgruntled look on their faces that says, ‘I’d rather be somewhere else, or ‘What does this fool want?’ The ‘fool’ they are referring to is, of course, you—the teacher, principal, or any adult that appears to have already passed judgment on who they think you are and what they think you are about.” The scenario Dunbar describes is not some Dickensian poorhouse or orphanage, but the contemporary American alternative school. “The alternative school has been sold as a bill of goods,” says Dunbar, an assistant professor in the Department of Educational Administration. “We’re told that because of its smaller size, the school is going to provide more attention and that students’ individual needs are going to be better met.

Learn from Alternative Schools
Nicholas Johnson
Iowa City Press-Citizen , "Opinion," May 22, 2001, p. 9A
What can traditional high schools learn from alternative high schools? An earlier column described alternative schools and our district’s need for one. Alternative schools’ advocates believe traditional schools are failing some of their students. It’s not the students who are failing in those schools. Alternative schools address the individual needs of their students. They are schools students and their teachers want to attend. Schools with little or no graffiti, violence, absenteeism or bullying. Schools where students feel safe and learning takes place. The best of them are among America’s most exciting educational success stories. Why limit their accomplishments? What can traditional high schools borrow from them to the benefit of all? There are some things alternative schools do that we couldn’t or wouldn’t want to do in our high schools. Some we’d like to do but can’t afford. Other things we’re already doing. Fortunately, our teachers are perfectly capable of evaluating which of the alternative schools’ qualities are worth borrowing.

Alternative Schools Mission To provide a learning environment that promotes the development of literacy, numeracy and pro-social skills and helps students transition to a successful future. We recognize that our students are deficient in the basic academic and/or social skills which are necessary to lead successful lives in our culture. Therefore we work hard at teaching our students how to read and write with facility and skill, how to operate efficiently in the world of mathematics, and how to make decisions and act in a pro-social, as opposed to anti-social, manner. We recognize that the fact that we are a school, the educational partner in the continuum of services offered to children and youth. We serve the critical educational needs of eligible students in Santa Clara County. Since 1958, we have provided quality school services to delinquent, disruptive, disadvantaged, and disabled children and youth. While we continue our historical commitment to education, we realize that we are not the solution to every problem.
  • We assess student performance, but we are not an assessment center.

Alternative Schools Accountability Model « Back Beginning on July 1, 2001, each Alternative School operated by the Santa Clara County Office of Education was required to establish a set of indicators for assessment under the Alternative Schools Accountability Model (ASAM) pursuant to the Public Schools Accountability Act (1999). The Alternative Schools Department has two sets of ASAM indicators, one for the institutional schools and one for the community schools. For the purposes of the ASAM requirements, a school is defined by being identified with a County District School (CDS) code number. Schools have varying indicators depending on which division of the Alternative Schools Department, institutional or community, they may fall under. [ INDICATORS ] County Community School The sites that fall under the title of County Community School have the following indicators: Attendance - Total number of apportionment days claimed for all long-term students enrolled in the school during the reporting year, divided by the total days of enrollment for all long-term students enrolled in the school during the reporting year.

You could put your children in a school that hammers them into assembly-line products. Or you could choose an education that nurtures your children into creative, sensitive individuals. First of a two-part report from the leading alternative schools and their underlying philosophy
1965. All of four years old, I'm bursting with excitement as I wear my new uniform-red checked skirt, starched white blouse, striped tie. I've been longing for this day, green with envy as I see my sister go to the ' bada ( big ) school' every morning. Already I have tasted school-an experimental model school ' in which I've played on swings and slides, built blocks, crayoned and painted to my heart's content. I imagine ' bada school' to be a bigger, brighter version of this.
The day, however, turns out to be probably the worst one of my life. I have to sit at a desk, one of a row of small uniformed human beings. Uneasy, required to be quiet. I feel faceless, nameless. The teacher looks at us with lethargy and disinterest. I am chilled by the cold, unfriendly atmosphere.
Slowly, I grow used to my '

Alternative libraries for alternative schools

"I am never coming here again." "Well, that's what happens when an institution isn't run by the business field." "Is there a line or something? What am I supposed to do to get this copied?" These were tidbits overheard in my own hour's wait to get something copied at the 42nd Street Library in New York. Public libraries have reached such a point that (in professional lingo) accessibility is becoming difficult, or, to be more realistic, impossible. School libraries, which serve a smaller population, should be doing better, but six years in the secondary school system have convinced me they are not. School librarians are isolated and alone - separated from profesisonal colleagues, viewed by users as archaic, and pressured by the administration to be a showcase where everything looks good and nothing is heard. Not surprisingly, the school library is no exception to rules which ignore reality. Classrooms are dedicated to the pursuit of non-useful knowledge because a faceless bureaucracy dictates a uniform code of practice known as The Curriculum. This channelling leaves the school an insipid, uninspiring place to be. Cuts, drop-outs, drugs and insolence and students' frustrated means of communicating to The Establishment that all is not well. The school library I was in claimed to be serving the 4000 on the rollbooks despite a 60% drop-out rate before graduation. We were supposed to be ecstatic when there were over 50 students in the room. That was real cool, except most were present because the lunchroom was too crowded and there was no study hall. And we were not even giving FULL library service to any of those students. Usually we were helping write term papers for teachers who followed The Curriculum, while hoping to encourage some leisure reading along the way.

The return of troublemakers highlights program flaws

Now that the troublemakers are beginning to return to their home schools, consternation is replacing relief in some quarters. Jerome Rhoades, a case manager at Aunt Martha's Youth Service, which runs one of the alternative schools, describes the first transition hearing he attended as "a major battle. This particular principal, he did not want to let this kid back in. He was basically hard as nails. I thought to myself, 'Jesus, this is not by any means the worst kid.'" According to Rhoades, the principal had to be taken aside and pressured into accepting the student. "I heard some voices getting loud," he says. "It sounded like [the principal] had no choice at that point—his decision had changed." Aunt Martha's, which has served up to 45 students at a time, has returned four to public schools.

Alternative Schools and Programs TDSB Alternative schools offer students and parents something different from mainstream schooling. Each alternative school, whether elementary or secondary, has a distinct identity and approach to curriculum delivery. They usually feature a small student population, a commitment to innovative and experimental programs, and volunteer commitment from parents and other community members. Students take credit courses in all alternative secondary schools. In some schools, courses are delivered through an independent study program. Each school varies in enrolment, age groups, and grade levels. For more information on admission and program, contact the alternative schools.
