Classroom teachers and ALP teachers collaborate to select students for the program based on specific criteria. Six certified staff members work with the selected students to assist them with course completion, credit recovery and career planning. Students also have the opportunity to access the Academic Support Center, where they receive additional assistance with Ames High School coursework.
