Alternative Learning Opportunities Program
(ALOP Schools)
  • ALOP Schools provide students in grades 4 through
    12 who are at risk of academic failure with a
    broader range of academic, behavioral and
    social/emotional interventions designed to
    increase the academic levels of these students so
    that they are able to meet the Illinois Learning
    Standards and complete their education in a safe
    learning community.
  • Students have 0-5 credits and are either on
    probation or parole.
  • ALOP Schools at three locations
  • 1) Healy South Alternative High School
  • 2) Healy North Alternative High School
  • 3) Center Factory School
  • Currently 150 students enrolled in program with
    numbers steadily increasing.

ALOP SCHOOLS
  • Program designed to address individual learning
    styles, career development, and social services
    that will enable students to successfully
    complete their education.
  • The program of instruction is consistent with the
    Illinois Learning Standards and students receive
    credit toward completion of required courses.
  • A student success plan must be developed with
    each student to determine educational goals. In
    addition, ALOP schools must provide students with
    additional services such as counseling, mentoring
    or tutoring, health and nutrition education, and
    childcare.
