Special Services - Non-Traditional Education

Open book and an apple

Non-traditional education in Warren County includes a variety of approaches to teaching and learning separate from that which is offered by our traditional secondary schools.  Non-traditional options include a continuum of services that support students in the least restrictive environment.  The following is a brief description of the options available for our students.


Choices is a program embedded in the high schools that provides intensive case management, as well as a pull-out site available to students to access additional academic and counseling support. This intervention is generally accessed before a referral to the non-traditional placement committee is completed.

This virtual approach to learning utilizes “APEX”, which is an online educational program that supports students’ diverse needs.  Two staff members at the 15th Street Special Services site support a computer lab for students to access the program and receive additional academic support.  The students are also expected to access the material from home and complement the limited seat time available.  This approach allows students to participate in school at non-traditional times and work at their own pace to meet their academic goals.  APEX Learning
