Welcome to Alliance Alternative Academies!
Dear Altitude, SUCCESS & Digital Families,
Welcome to the 2019 - 2020 school year! I am very excited to participate in the growth of all students, academically and socially. Alliance Alternative Academies serve students ranging in grades 4 through 12 within the Alliance City School district and beyond. We are committed to academic, social and behavioral growth. Our primary instructional practice is to promote 21st century skills and build capacity to return to traditional classrooms within the school district. It is our daily goal to facilitate learning that is contextual, creative and shared. Students will learn by using various instructional strategies, including technology, while educators monitor and analyze progress.
As a willing participant in this program, students have the potential to grow in their vision of schooling and enrich decision making skills in order to be productive students in our district. In addition to focused reading and math instruction, all students will have instruction on understanding different points of view, developing and settling into responsibilities and routines, creating study habits, gaining a sense of agency in learning, and forming friendships that will last throughout their school age years. Jointly, we will work to teach students to be active learners of the world around them while developing higher functioning behavioral skills.
I solicit your involvement in your child’s time at our academies. We value your input and support. We believe you are essential to all students receiving the best education possible. Please consider helping to make us one family, deeply rooted in all aspects of our students’ formative years. On behalf of the staff of Alliance Alternative Academies, we look forward to collaborating with you for a successful school year.
Yours in education,
Portia A. Johnson
