2 KRS (1)(a) - ”Alternative Education” a program that exists to meet the needs of students that cannot be addressed in a traditional classroom setting but through the assignment of students to alternative classrooms, centers, or campuses that are designed to remediate academic performance, improve behavior, or provide an enhanced learning experience. Alternative education programs do not include career or technical centers or departments. 2

3  Programs that are not within an existing A1 School or on the same campus as an existing A1 School.  All off-site programs must have a school number.  Districts should request a school number for any off- site alternative program in the district Pages/School-Change-Requests.aspx Pages/School-Change-Requests.aspx 3

4  Utilize Infinite Campus for tracking of student data  A student placed in an off-site alternative placement must be withdrawn from the A1 school and re-enrolled into the alternative school.  All students placed in alternative education programs must have an ILPA or a transition plan with the components required by regulation.  All student data during the time of enrollment in the alternative school must be tracked in Infinite Campus.  Course sections should be created designating Alternative Classroom as the Special Type and students’ schedules should reflect these classes. 4

5  Programs within an existing A1 school or on the same physical campus as an existing A1 school are considered on-site alternative programs.  A student placed in an on-site alternative placement must be withdrawn from their current course sections and re-enrolled into alternative placement course sections.  Course sections must be created designating Alternative Classroom as the Special Type and students must be enrolled into the appropriate course depending on their schedule. 5

7 Individual Learning Plan Addendum-ILPA An action plan that addresses the changed educational needs of a student based upon entry into or exit from an alternative education program that includes, as appropriate academic and behavioral needs of the student, criteria for the student’s re-entry into the traditional program, and the provisions for regular review of the student’s progress throughout the school year while in an alternative education program. 7

8 The ILPA is an action plan to ensure students being placed in an alternative education program stay on track for graduation and being college and career ready. NOTE: A student with an IEP does not require an additional ILPA, the student’s placement, goals and objectives will be updated based on the ARC decisions. 8

9 The ILPA may include the following information:  A plan for transition into and out of the alternative program  Criteria for re-entry into the regular education program  Goals and timelines for the student  Formative & summative assessment data  Behavioral assessment data  Progress Monitoring information The student’s ILPA should be updated regularly to reflect progress and changes. 9
