Purpose & Overview


The purpose of the Dallastown Area School District Alternative Education Program is to provide a quality educational option for students in grades 9-12 for whom the traditional school setting is not currently effective.

There are various reasons that a referral to the DASD Alternative Education Program may be initiated by Dallastown High School administrative staff. These reasons could include chronic truancy, disregard for school authority, misconduct/violations meriting suspension, or as a transition program for students returning from other placements.

While in the alternative education program, students will participate in computer-based core academic instruction as well as in counseling activities that meet their individual needs. The focus will be on enhancing academic ability to meet Pennsylvania State Standards and to ultimately assist the student to develop the skills needed to return to the regular school setting and be successful.
