ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION

ILLINOIS

Illinois offers a grant program to school districts to fund alternative education programs for truant students, dropouts, and potential dropouts. Each of these programs must involve a comprehensive community-based planning process that includes participation by businesses, community organizations, social service providers, government agencies, parents, school administrators, teachers, and students. The state also mentions the need for supplemental services that provide students with tutoring, mentoring, home visits, health services, and counseling to increase their attendance rates or keep them from dropping out of school.
