Additional Notes

Program Overview

The Regional Office of Education has the opportunity to serve students from 13 school districts from Boone and Winnebago County in need of alternative education opportunities. Students are referred to the programs for a variety of reasons but will be met with a caring and dedicated staff focused on meeting both their social and emotional and academic needs through a trauma informed lens. The mission of Summit Academy is two-fold: to restore and graduate students. Our mission is personalized for each student through an individualized student success plan.

Whether a student spends 6 months with us for 2 years, our only goal is to support them as they learn and grow and transition back to their sending school or graduate into their next phase of adulthood. The Regional Director of Alternative Schools will lead a team of administrators, teachers, support staff and wellness personnel. The program consists of a Regional Safe School Program serving up to 200 students in grades 6-12 that have been expelled or are having their expulsion held in abeyance. Summit Academy program also provides an Alternative Learning Opportunity Program serving up to 200 students in grades 9-12 that are credit deficient, truant, and may have minor behavior concerns.
