SERVICE AREA: Miami and Darke Counties
OFFICE HOURS: 8:00 am to 4:30 pm – Monday through Friday
SERVICES: ACES is a collaborative effort of CORS and the Miami and Darke County Education Service Centers that offer an alternative education program for students in grades 9 – 12 that are struggling and need help to succeed in school. Coursework is provided in smaller off-site classroom settings through independent study under the guidance of a certified teacher and aides. Students have the opportunity to receive support services to address personal needs while involved and a workforce development component is also available.
Students attend ACES but still work with and graduate from their home school.
ELIGIBILITY: Referral into the program must be made from the student’s home school administrator. An individual needs assessment must indicate multiple areas of social and behavioral needs that cannot be sufficiently addressed in the regular school setting.
