The Job Readiness Program provides young adults and adults an opportunity to develop the skills and behaviors necessary to obtain a job that leads to a successful career. Our services help our students with resume building, all phases of interviewing and dressing for success.
The Alternative to Suspension Program (ASP)
The Alternative to Suspension Program (ASP) is an intervention and prevention program designed to provide an alternative to out of school suspensions for middle and high school students. ASP addresses the needs of students who exhibit chronic disruptive behaviors that interfere with classroom instruction and hinders the school climate.
These students are not a danger to themselves or others; however, decisions they have made violate the DeKalb County School District’s disciplinary policies and require removing the students from regular school setting for a brief period of time.
