Admission Criteria for Special Education Referrals

 

Special Education students are best served in the traditional schools where comprehensive special education services are available.  If a student with an IEP is referred to one of the ALC secondary locations an IEP meeting at the referring school must take place.

The points outlined in the “Procedure for Referring Special Education Students to an ALC program” must be followed and an “ALC Special Education Referral Form” must be completed.  These forms are available from the Counselors and any of the ALC programs.

Please include a transcript of credits to be earned/completed at one of the ALC programs for the student to meet your schools graduation requirements if the student will be receiving a high diploma from the referring school.
