Alternative Learning

Classroom teachers and ALP teachers collaborate to select students for the program based on specific criteria. Five 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 participate in a social-emotional learning course to help prepare them for life situations. The course also provides them with academic support, where they can get additional assistance with Ames High School coursework.
