EXTENDED HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM

Established in October, 2016, on the foundation of the existing alternative high school.

Funded through a U.S. Department of Education Native Youth Community Project Grant.

For non-traditional students, including students who have dropped out previously, students who spend time working from home, students in their fifth year of high school, et al.

Working to provide additional supports to students to bolster success: full-time counselor, “classes” on topics including parenting skills, dealing with grief and loss, and Lakota culture and tradition.

Opportunities for growth and development:

Looking for expanded facilities;

Working to conduct additional home visits;

Increasing access to counseling and mental health services;

Supporting dual enrollment at OLC; and

Targeted tutoring for math and language proficiency.

Four full-time staff supporting about 40 students with hopes to increase enrollment, over four years, to 80 students.
