Learning Alternatives Community School celebrates student success
On Wednesday, May 30, 2012 family and friends gathered to attend the annual Learner Celebration for the district's Learning Alternatives Community School (LACS).
Recognized as the 2012 Minnesota Alternative Program of the Year, LACS is for learners between the ages of 12 and 21 who are seeking success in an alternative setting. Instruction is individualized, learner-directed, and flexible with full time day, independent study, and afternoon programs.
Of particular note this year is that 40 Learning Alternatives students were among the 333 graduates crossing the stage at Spring Lake Park High School's June 1 commencement exercises.
At the Learner Celebration, LACS students were able to celebrate their success in a year- end program among their peers and family. School-wide and program awards were presented, and club/group accomplishments were recognized.
