Alternative Education Program

Alternative Education Program

 

The Alternative Education Program is a program for 10-12 graders and has been a very successful program within the Ogallala High School.   One of the main goals within this program is to help students work to their full potential and reach the graduation requirements that they would normally reach in the regular education setting.  The students in this classroom work off of the A+ Anywhere Curriculum which is structured for each individual student to work at their own pace while completing up to 6 lessons on a daily bases.  Within the last couple years there have been many success stories, which has made graduation rates very high out of this environment.  We are very proud to have a great program like this within our Ogallala Public School system.
