Academy District 20's commitment to this program has allowed us to provide in-person instruction in core classes with low teacher/student ratios. The success of this program can best be illustrated by the life changing stories of the students and families who have experienced the program.
The program is available for expelled students from the 7th through 12th grades.
The program runs in person every other day, based on the high school’s block scheduling.
EPP provides small group instruction in English, Math, and Social Studies.
Students also take a Teen Choices or Discovery class to learn and practice strategies needed to succeed in school and society.
Students at EPP also gain a science credit through our online curriculum and teacher lead intervention.
In EPP, students may earn up to five credits per semester. Students that are highly motivated can also gain additional credits in foreign language and Physical education through online coursework.
Parents/guardians are expected to provide transportation and keep an open dialogue with the staff.
There are consistent and high expectations for work completion and immediate interventions for student’s unfinished work.
Parents are contacted by the program when the District official details the terms and dates of expulsion.
