Document Number: 3478Tennessee’s Alternative Schools: Serving Disruptive Students - In response to the Education Improvement Acts (EIA) of 1992 that require local boards of education to establish alternative schools for students in grades 7-12 who have been suspended or expelled, the Office of Education Accountability (OEA) surveyed all 139 superintendents in the state in November 1994 to review the extent to which alternative schools have been put into place, students served, cost of programs and effectiveness of schools. This report also proposes alternatives that could help improve the operation and oversight of alternative schools in Tennessee. (Melissa McNeil Brown, OEA, September 1995)...
