The Edna Alternative School Will…
· Be designed to meet the individual needs of students who are unable to benefit educationally from the comprehensive school environment.

Students interested in EAS will complete an application for admittance, are screened by a committee, and recommended to the Superintendent of Schools for approval/admittance. Students will work toward their diplomas through an individualized academic plan which is created by high school counselors. Credits will be earned through self-paced/student centered online instruction. All students will be provided with instruction from highly qualified teachers and instructional aides.
