From our President & CEO
Once again it is ďback to schoolĒ time. For most children itís usually an exciting time filled with something new such as fashionable clothes, colorful supplies and supportive friends.
But for some kids they are dealing with other issues such as bullying at school, substance abuse in the home, and poverty and hunger. Please be aware and helpful to all the youth in this community as they start the new school year and step up and help where you can.
Because All Kids Matter.

The Learning Place
An Alternative Academic Day Treatment Program
for Middle School Students
The Learning Place is a school-like day treatment program for students in grades 7-9 who have experienced significant behavioral difficulties in the public school setting. This program will launch in August of 2015.
Academic, counseling and behavioral components encourage students to return to and succeed in the traditional school setting.
Each studentís academic plan is individualized to address deficiencies in basic skills and knowledge base.
The counseling component is designed to assist in the identification of obstacles to success and in development of strategies to overcome them.
The behavioral component responds to the studentís need for immediate feedback and consequences for their behavior.
Students earn privileges and can work their way through a series of levels.
Parental involvement is essential to a studentís success in The Learning Place, and parents are apprised daily of their childís progress and involved with programming.
The staff is comprised of a Director, teachers, and counselors. The low student to staff ratio allows staff members to give individual attention. Each staff member is trained to work with students who exhibit behavioral difficulties.
