What does it mean to have your child in alternative school? It means that you are finding a more ideal learning environment for them to succeed in. Alternative schools were initially created for “troubled” students whose behavior prevented them from attending traditional school. Today, alternative students exist for a variety of reasons. They may experience social, emotional and/or learning differences, need additional support and guidance, are looking to work at a faster pace, or perhaps have life circumstances that challenge their current educational setting. Regardless of the reason, the staff at KBA focuses on the individual student to develop an educational roadmap that meets their needs.
How can you continue to support your child? Keep in touch! Regular contact with your child’s teacher, and monitoring of their progress, results in more productivity from the student. An observer account can be created upon request if you would like to see what your student is doing on a daily basis.

The district will destroy these special education records by shredding them after July 31st, 2019. Destruction of these records is the best protection against improper and unauthorized disclosure.
