Advanced Alternative Learning Program for Students

The Advanced Alternative Learning Program for Students (AALPS) is a unique half day program designed to provide BVSD students the opportunity to earn and/or retrieve academic credit, while building and strengthening social, emotional, and life skills.

The AALPS program prioritizes a low teacher to student ratio in order to set students up for academic success. What truly sets AALPS apart from other academic programs are the carefully designed wrap-around services that are incorporated into the program in order to meet each student’s individual needs and goals.

Most students will be attending AALPS as well as their home school.  AALPS is not designed to be a permanent placement; instead, it is available as a short term program to help get students back on track for graduation, while addressing the root causes of each student's academic challenges.  The AALPS team will work closely alongside each student’s home school team to set goals, determine appropriate programming, and to create a timeline for the student to return full-time to their school.

AALPS is designed to help students return full-time to their home high school with credits towards graduation and the skills to succeed in reaching their academic and personal goals.
