Board Shuns Support of Alternative School Plan

Anderson County School District 5 was invited to present an overview of their proposed Pilot Project for the Alternative School to the Anderson County Board of Education Monday night at their regular meeting. The presentation detailed a plan to help find a new entry point for students who might benefit from the Alternative School.

The proposal would allow students to be admitted to the Alternative School without first being expelled from their current school. The new program would, in special circumstances, allow a student to be transferred to the alternative school without the stigma of having an expulsion on their record. Officials said that other similar schools in the state already had a similar policy to allow students to transfer into alternative schools without being expelled.

Dist. 5 asked the County Board for a letter of support for the pilot program to be given to the Alternative School Board at its next meeting. The County Board rejected the request by a vote of 5-3.

The proposal will be considered by the Alternative School Board later this month.
