18. Student involvement - promising practices in Alternative Education
Students in the Alternative Education program or school freely choose to enter the alternative setting. Students are involved in the ongoing development of the program - including decisions on hiring staff, setting class rules, and elective course options. Students are aware of, and continuously monitor their own academic progress such as classes completed and credits earned. Students are involved with evaluating the effectiveness of the Alternative Education program/school and providing suggestions to improve conditions.
