  1. THIS IS NOT A DISCIPLINE REFERRAL PROCESS OR A RESULT OF A DISCIPLINARY ACTION, but discipline issues often times can play a major role as to why students seek an alternative placement with us.


  1. An initial meeting with the student will need to take place to explain our program and the expectations of our program


  1. Parent/ guardian permission will be sought for the student to shadow the program
