Application forms may be acquired from a counselor at any of Union’s secondary schools or at the Alternative school site office. The intake process for the program is intended to be both thorough and simple.
Because a maximum of 170 students can be enrolled for the high school program, it is important that the students admitted are truly in need of the services and are likely to benefit from the programs.
Applicants may be referred by a school professional, a parent/guardian, or by themselves.
What happens next
Once the application is received, the student’s academic records are reviewed, and interviews are conducted. The student, his or her parents or guardians, school personnel, and other sources are interviewed.
The results of these interviews are discussed among the program’s staff. Those students deemed most appropriate for the program are enrolled, while others remain on the waiting list.
Before students are accepted into the program, they must be willing to sign a contract which states their willingness to comply with the school’s rules and to be successful in the program.
Students who fail to comply with this contract may be involuntarily returned to regular education classes or sent to the Intervention Program.
