Transition Assistance Program
Where all young people can find success in education and life.
The Transition Assistance Program (T.A.P.) is a self-contained classroom operated at both middle schools and the high school for students needing assistance with behavior management. The teacher to student ratio is 1:12. The focus of the classroom is to continue the core academics while also providing therapeutic intervention, social skills, and conflict resolution. The goal is to prepare the student for re-entry into the regular education setting. T.A.P. provides an option prior to a student being assigned to an out-of-school program for disruptive youth or eases the transition for students returning to the regular classroom from an alternative education or other programs. The students are progress monitored monthly and results are shared with parents.
An elementary program (E-T.A.P.) is currently operating at Hamilton Heights Elementary School. This program provides similar services for students in grades 3 to 5.
