Troubled students get alternative schooling in the area

WILMINGTON, NC (STARNEWSONLINE) — The New Hanover County Board of Education is moving forward with establishing a new suspension center for the 2016-2017 school year.

Hannah Delacourt with the StarNews reports the center would be at the Old Roe Facility at 2875 Worth Dr. in Wilmington.

Delacourt says the program is supposed to reduce the number of students missing instruction because of out-of-school suspensions. It would provide alternative schooling for students on both long-term and short-term suspensions and include a component to teach replacement behaviors.

The new center would become home to the long-term suspension program, Pathways, that already exists at the Mosely Performance Learning Center on Princess Place Drive.
