There are required coding changes for any district operating a hybrid alternative education program. For districts operating a traditional ALE program (one in which students are present onsite full time), no changes in coding are necessary. However, for those operating a hybrid program (one in which ALE students participate through a blend of online and onsite learning, student coding must be re-entered to reflect that the student participates in a hybrid program. These changes must be completed by the required Cycle Three closing date, which is November 15th.
An email went out to all superintendents on October 3, 2022, with an invitation to a zoom meeting with the DESE Office of Alternative Education, which was held on October 10, 2022. Complete instructions and details were provided during the meeting. If you were unable to attend the zoom meeting, the meeting was recorded and can be found at the address below.
Should you have any questions, please contact Jared Hogue, Dr. CW Gardenhire, or Lisa Johnson.
