The Eastside Academy/Transitional Learning Center Student Enrollment and Review Panel will meet on a monthly basis to consider recommendations for enrollment in the Eastside Academy/Transitional Learning Center.
Priority of Enrollment
Priority of enrollment to the Eastside Academy/Transitional Learning Center will be given to students who have been expelled or who are on probation for violent and/or dangerous offenses. For all other students, the school shall provide to the panel documentation justifying a recommendation for enrollment. In determining the appropriateness of the recommendation the panel will consider the following:
- Enrollment cap
- Enrollment composition
- Student needs
- Interventions provided
Schools recommending a student for enrollment in the Eastside Academy/Transitional Learning Center, except in the case of an expulsion or a student on probation for a violent offense, shall exhaust all appropriate school site interventions to remedy the behavior for which the student is being recommended, to include progressive discipline, behavior contracts, parent conferences, Student Success Team (SST) referrals/monitoring, counseling, outside agency referrals, referral to the Abolish Chronic Truancy (ACT) program, Student Attendance Review Board (SARB) referral, Response to Instruction and Intervention (RtI2), parent participation in Parent Project, and any other form of intervention as appropriate. In recommending a student for enrollment in the Eastside Academy/Transitional Learning Center, except in the case of an expulsion or a student on probation for a violent and/or dangerous offense, the school shall demonstrate a continued pattern of behavior which seriously hinders either the student's ability to function in a traditional schooling environment, a teacher's ability to teach, or other students' ability to learn in a safe and orderly environment. All schools shall complete and submit the Eastside Academy/Transitional Learning Center Student Enrollment Recommendation Packet at least five days prior to the scheduled panel meeting.
