Alternative Education

The Dodge City Alternative Education program consists of four different programs.  

They are:

  • STRIDE, which is an online education program that is suppoted with certified teachers.  This program is designed for students in grades 9-12 that provides a different educational option to Dodge City High School students.  The alternative program has graduated between 68-79 students each year over the past five years.  The average enrollment at the Alternative School is 90 students.
  • CHOICE is a program that serves students in grades 6-12 that have been long-term suspended or expelled from their regular school.  This helps keep suspended students on pace to graduate while preventing them from continually disrupting others from learning at their regular school.
  • STP is a program that serves students in grades 6-12 who have been suspended on a short-term basis from their regular school.  These students go back to their regular school when the suspension ends.
  • JSRC is a joint program between USD 443 and the 16th Judicial District Juvenile Services office.  This is a program that serves students in grades 6-12 who have had trouble in most school settings or have been court ordered to attend.
