The Alternative Education Administrator Learning Network will meet four times a year to share research-based strategies for increasing student engagement, increasing rigor in the classroom, increasing focus on college/career preparation, and to discuss other key challenges that students in alternative education settings often experience. The network will incorporate strategies such as professional development opportunities on increasing FAFSA/Dream Act submissions, assisting with post-baccalaureate matriculation into college/educational institutions, and the integration of FAFSA/Dream Act completion into the school program. There will be a focus on sharing best practices by schools that have received Model Continuation School Awards. Opportunities to participate in “Walk to Lead” learning walks will be provided to network participants.
