The mission of the Grainger County Alternative School is to identify and work with at-risk students who are having difficulty functioning in their regular school.  The Alternative School will work in conjunction with parents/guardians, principals, teachers and counselors to identify and target goals and objectives that students need to work with.  This plan will then be utilized as a guide to enable students to make needed modifications in overall behavior, academic achievement, therapeutic/counseling issues and attendance.  The Alternative School is designed to be a short term (8-45 days) behavior modification program.  The goal is to enable students the opportunity to change their behavior in order to be successful upon returning to their regular school.
