In an effort to minimize recidivism and maximize success after students return to their home campus, the AEC created a transition program. Often the students feel frustrated, making it more difficult for them to get a fresh start. The students also feel disconnected from their home campuses and are at risk for truancy or dropping out.
The goal of the transition program is to maintain a student-campus connection and ensure that the student is successfully enrolled at their home campus at the end of their term with us. The transition team will reinforce and encourage student progress and help to problem solve any issues or problems that may arise.
Each week, a team of AEC teachers, counselors, and/or administrators will visit the home schools of students who have been released. During each visit, the transition team will review attendance, grades, and discipline. Each team will visit the student, on their home campus, at least three times.
