Secondary Options for Academic Recovery
Project SOAR is an after school program designed to provide an alternate instructional setting for general and special education high school students who currently are on home instruction or experiencing academic failure thereby presenting a drop out risk and/or alternate placement needed due to school avoidance, anxiety, depression or other emotional/social concerns that prohibit these students from attending a traditional high school setting.
About Project SOAR
To qualify for Project SOAR, a student must be recommended by school personnel or by a parent. The referral form must be submitted by a School Counselor/CST member to the SOAR intake committee for consideration.
Once a student is enrolled into Project SOAR, the SOAR staff will enroll the student in the appropriate online instruction through Educere. SOAR staff will monitor attendance, participation, and the provision of support services. Through the Educere online program, students work at their own pace and are provided with a pace chart of assignments to be completed for each course. Online teachers grade the assignments and provide feedback to the students. Grades, progress, and the time spent on each activity can be viewed by students, parents, and SOAR staff.
**Transportation is available through arrangement
