Funding for Alternative Education Grants

comparisons adjusted for inflation (cpi)

Alternative Education Grants were eliminated in the FY 2017 budget. Alternative Education Grants help school districts establish alternative education programs at the middle and high school level for students who are struggling in the traditional school setting. Students in need of alternative education face difficult challenges including severe attendance issues, the risk of repeating grades, teen pregnancy, and discipline issues that have resulted in suspensions or expulsions. While Alternative Education Grants are targeted primarily at continuing educational opportunities for students outside of regular classroom settings, some funding can also support preventative measures for students with persistent challenges.

The overall goal of alternative education is to provide a customized program that meets the needs of students who are not able to succeed in the traditional school setting. However, students in alternative settings are taught the same academic standards and alternative schools, along with the educators who staff them, work under the same regulations and quality standards as traditional schools.

Alternative education settings can be housed within traditional schools or in separate dedicated facilities. These schools often feature intensive academic monitoring, small group learning, flexible schedules, life skills and conflict resolution training, other social services, and partnerships with higher education campuses, employers, and community organizations.
