New Directions Alternative Center: Future Considerations Offer incentives for students to reduce their assigned time at NDAC! Expand student services through NDAC, such as, to offer GED as part of our program. Consider the possibility that the program may be more conducive to working high school seniors, offering them a more flexible schedule for classes Offer an option for an intensive study for juniors and seniors at risk of not graduating on time Offer “Credit Recovery” for students with excessive absences
New Directions Alternative Center We’re headed in the right direction!
