Opportunity Day School (ODS)
What is the Opportunity Day School?
The Opportunity Day School (ODS) began in February 2017 for those students, grades 7-12 who have been long-term suspended and/or expelled from school and under HB 1541 must be provided academic services so as they can continue to progress toward grade-level completion and/or high school graduation.
Students are referred to ODS from their school administration to the ODS Program Administrator and working together as a team with the family, school and district office, a plan for academic and social/emotional services is developed. Students attend one of two sessions and either work on homework completion and/or an online learning program.
As part of the suspension/expulsion, a re-engagement meeting is conducted prior to a student's return to school.
