Office of Youth Re-Engagement
In the next five years, the design plan is to incorporate a MicroSchool at each of the large comprehensive high schools in Madison (East, West, La Follette and Memorial). In collaboration with educators and an administration at each respective site, the Office of Youth Re-Engagement will design and implement a program that supports participating students in academic engagement and socio-emotional awareness. Each alternative transition program will be customized to the specific needs and outcomes as identified by the school community (educators, administrators, families and students).
