Alternative Education

  • The Behavioral Daytime Alternative School serves those students who have been removed from the regular school environment because of disciplinary infractions and for students who have been recommended for expulsion from their regular school setting.  Turlington Woods School utilizes the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) as its primary research-based program to proactively work with students to improve their behavior and academic skills. Each student participates in the check-in check out process which is designed to provide increased positive adult contact, embedded social skills training, frequent feedback, and daily home communication. Students with disability placement will be determined by their IEP team. This program is currently housed at Turlington Woods School.  

    The Tidewater Regional Alternative Education Program is a cooperative effort with five other school divisions in the area.  This program serves students who have been recommended for long-term suspensions of 90 days. Also, TRAEP serves students returning from state correctional facilities where they have been committed for offenses involving drugs, weapons, or personal assault.
