Description: School-based programs help provide educational support, training and/or supervision for youth where academic and/or behavioral problems originated in the school setting. There are four types of school-based programs: After School, Alternative School, School Interventionist, and School Resource Officers. Alternative Schools focus on youth who have been expelled or suspended form their home school system to provide academic enrichment to the youth. This helps youth earn credits while waiting to return to school so they don’t fall behind in school work, grades, and can graduate in a timely manner.
