St. Croix Valley Area Learning Center

Dear Student and/or Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

On September 2, 2014, we will begin a new school year at the St. Croix Valley Area Learning Center (ALC). With the start of the new year the ALC will see some changes designed to offer more choices to better serve our students and move towards becoming a more sustainable program for the future. It is important to note that although the model of the school is changing, the ALC will remain a Stillwater Area Public School District program for the 2014-2015 school year. Current and new ALC students will remain students of the district and continue to be taught by Stillwater‐employed teachers using Stillwater resources.

Beginning this fall, the ALC will offer a new model, with a full day schedule, to all new students. As an existing student, you will have the opportunity to continue with the current, Independent Study (IS) morning or afternoon program, as long as you remain successful. To be successful you will need to meet attendance and progress requirements. If you are not meeting the attendance and/or making adequate progress, you will be given a one-term probation to meet the requirements, then be moved to the full-day model if requirements are still not met.

We will be creating fall schedules in August. Prior to this time, please contact Beth Rogers at 651.351.8472 or to let us know if you'd like to continue in the current model. If we do not hear from you, you will automatically be enrolled in the new, full-day program.

Also, please contact Beth if you have any questions regarding summer programming. We look forward to a great school year at St. Croix Valley Area Learning Center. Enjoy your summer and we will see you soon!
