Alternative Learning Opportunities Program (ALOP)

West40 advocates are the support system to help students stay on track toward success.

HOW WE HELP

The West40 ALOP (Alternative Learning Opportunities Program) is designed to increase school completion rates/graduation rates for students who are struggling by removing barriers and giving them the support they need.
 
Along with academic and attendance support, our advocates build relationships with our students by infusing social-emotional learning and behavioral support into their days and fostering positive engagement.

WHO WE SERVE

ALOP programs are designed to serve students in grades 4-12+ who may be struggling in academics, attendance, behavior, or who are otherwise considered “at-risk”.

This includes students who may have just returned from hospitalization, are credit deficient, homeless, chronically absent, needing social emotional mentorship or excessive behavioral referrals. Link to Map

Our staff has seen the direct benefits of this program and how it serves as a bridge for students working through various social and emotional matters that can interfere with their education.  The Tapestry program is a great resource that allows students to stay connected to school while receiving the support they need to achieve their high school diploma.
