Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $76,020)

The primary purpose of the Allamakee Intervention Center is to meet the needs of at-risk students from 7th to 12th grades who were suspended from school or involved in some aspect of the Juvenile Court System. The specific goals are to provide a structured setting for students who have been suspended from school and provide academic support and supervision; provide a safe zone for students who are picked on, threatened, bullied, or belittled in school, home, or the community; keep students from dropping out of school by helping them through periods of turmoil and stress in their lives; keep at-risk students out of the Juvenile Court System by keeping them fully occupied during periods of separation from the school; and decrease the number of suspensions due to violent behavior. Each student will have an individual plan for program involvement that will include academic assignments and participation in three skills development sessions and education for each student's parents. An "after school" plan may be developed for each student whereby he/she will receive admittance to the Safe Schools/Healthy Schools. Progress is measured and recorded by tracking school attendance rates; student's class standing and progress toward graduation; and absence from the juvenile court system. NCA/NCF
