Frequently Asked Questions and Promising Practices

11. Community and social services - promising practices in Alternative Education

The Alternative Education program/school accommodates the delivery of support/wrap-around services without penalizing student success. Personalized student planning incorporates appropriate support services. Program/school staff are aware of a wide range of community resources, and staff maintain ongoing relationships with community resources and are able to provide referrals (for students and/or families) to community resources when appropriate. External resources - such as educational collaboratives, community colleges, community-based organizations, and service providers - are partnered with the program/school to meet the needs of individual and overall program objectives.
