Opportunity Education Program

Serves students who are habitually truant, irregular in attendance, insubordinate, disorderly, or failing academically.

Program Information

Opportunity Education provides a supportive environment with specialized curriculum, instruction, guidance and counseling, psychological services, and tutorial assistance to help students overcome barriers to learning. It should not be viewed as a permanent placement for resistant learners but as a short-term intervention to ensure that students will succeed when they return to their regular classrooms.

Accountability

The Alternative Schools Accountability Model (ASAM) provides accountability for educational options schools serving very high-risk, highly mobile students. These schools include opportunity, community day, continuation, county community, juvenile court, Division of Juvenile Justice, and other alternative schools that meet stringent criteria set by the State Board of Education.
