What is the enrollment process?
A student will need to meet with his/her current school counselor, who will assist in determining if the placement seems appropriate, and then bring the transfer request to the district Transition Team.
The Transition Team will act on the request, considering the student’s attendance, achievement, aptitude, and behavior; space available at the school; and whether the school can adequately address any special needs or circumstances the student might have.
NOTE: There is often a waiting list for available spaces. Students must continue attending and completing work in their current placement until the actual day of transfer. Failing to do so may be cause to delay transfer.
What are the school hours?
The school day goes from 8:30 AM to 2:34, with the teachers providing instruction from 8:30 AM to 2:15 PM (11:30 on Wednesdays). From 2:34– 3:15 PM each day is reserved for the teachers’ prep time and office hours; however, it is also an independent study period for those who need the extra time to catch up or to get ahead. The instructional day is organized into short, focused periods.
