Community School (Grades 6 – 12)
The purpose of County Community School is to provide an education to students who are referred by a School Attendance Review Board or by probation, homeless/sheltered, or expelled from their school of residence. County Community School’s educational programs are characteristically student-centered and adapted to meet individual needs. In addition to credit recovery, students are provided independent life skills, positive self-concepts, counseling, and effective relationships with others.
- Students attend for a maximum of two semesters before returning to their home school.
- The instructional day is 240 minutes (4 hours) of instruction 7:45 am – 12:00 pm, daily during the school year (August – June).
- Three full time teachers/counselors staff the Community School program from 7:30 am – 2:30 pm.
- An average of 12 students, grades 6 – 12, are served annually (1:4 teacher/student ratio).
The County Schools Office offers an independent study program for eligible students. Independent Study students meet at least once a week, one on one, with an instructor for 2 hours.
