Dwindling numbers close Pulaski Central as education alternative


Somerset —

 “In fact, our graduation rate will be better than it’s ever been,” said Wilds. “Students have been very successful where there are many more resources and supports.” 
Wilds said that the teachers who will not be in the alternative program in the coming year are returning to the regular high schools in order for our high schools to provide more services for all students. 
Part of the reason for the move comes from changes in state legislative guidelines to be implemented in the upcoming school year. 
“The Kentucky Department of Education has advanced new guidelines and regulations regarding alternative education,” said Wilds. “SWHS and PCHS have embraced the idea that all students deserve the most opportunities and resources possible. Our high schools continue to establish on-site intervention and alternative services, courses, and pathways.”
