Alternative Education

The School Board realizes that the needs of all of our students cannot be met within the formal school curriculum. Therefore, the School Board encourages alternative educational experiences that will enhance a student's learning and which will increase his/her ability to achieve success in the world of work.

Alternative education programs will be provided where needs have been identified, where the establishment of such programs is feasible, and where the proposed programs fall within the jurisdiction of this school division.
