Student Support

Students who have been suspended for a period of 1-10 days for offenses in which expulsion is not being pursued are asked to participate in The ACTIONS Program during the time of their suspension. This program is held at an alternative site where education in social skill instruction and academic course material takes place. ACTIONS staff are certified teachers who specialize in social-emotional instruction. The curriculum is designed to help students develop social skills that will allow them to navigate their school community and emotions effectively in order to promote maximum academic achievement.

ACTIONS classrooms are found on the second floor of the Family Information Center, located at 1103 N. Neil Street. The school day begins at 9:00 A.M. and ends at 3:00 P.M. For suspensions of two days or longer, academic assignments are sent to ACTIONS by the student’s home school teachers in order to allow students to remain on track in classes and eliminate academic frustration upon return to school that can further trigger unwanted behavior.

In addition to providing instruction during suspensions, ACTIONS staff work proactively with students at-risk of being suspended and follow-up with students after suspension. They visit schools to teach and encourage positive behavior and provide social skill instruction in the home school environment. Staff also partner with community agencies to complete referrals for students who are in need of additional services.
