BRIDGES PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The Bridges Evening Program, housed at the Almond Campus, is designed to provide a comprehensive alternative program for students to improve their academic achievement such that they are able to satisfy graduation requirements and earn a Warren diploma. Equally important the Bridges program will provide instruction, modeling, and mentoring on career and life skills that will facilitate the students being able to successfully “bridge” to the world of adult or post-secondary education or the world of work. Any member of the building Student Service Team, Administrator or parent, may refer a student to the Bridges Evening Program. The District’s admission criteria is non-discriminatory in that any student regardless of race ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or special education status will be considered for admission. There are two limiting criteria that apply; students must be 16 years of age and entering their 5th semester of high school.
An initial “Success” meeting with the Bridges Evening Guidance Counselor must take place for all students and their parent/guardian after the student has been referred to the program. All Bridges Evening Program documentation including a Student Success Plan must be complete before students can begin classes.
