Alternative Education Programs
Indianapolis Public Schools provides alternative settings for students who may need a nontraditional school environment. The alternative programs provide support in the following areas: academic acceleration; social/emotional skill building; and behavioral strategies and techniques. Students are engaged in many skill-building activities, which enhance their ability to make good choices and become productive citizens. The alternative programs are individualized and meet the needs of specific populations that are identified as requiring additional intervention. Each program’s mission serves a unique range of needs that vary from accelerating student completion of multiple grade levels in one year to an alternative to expulsion, based on the hearing officer's determination.
