 WARREN TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL

BRIDGES EVENING PROGRAM

 

The Bridges Evening Program is designed to provide a comprehensive alternative program for students to improve their academic achievement such that they are able to satisfy graduation requirements and earn a Warren diploma.  Equally important the Bridges program will provide instruction, modeling, and mentoring on career and life skills that will facilitate the students being able to successfully “bridge” to the world of adult or post secondary education or the world of work. 

Initial "Success" Meeting

An initial “Success” meeting with the Bridges Evening Guidance Counselor must take place for all students and their parent/guardian after the student has been referred to the program.  All Bridges Evening Program documentation including a Student Success Plan must be complete before students can begin classes.

Criteria

Any member of the building Student Service Team, Administrator or parent, may refer a student to the Bridges Evening Program.  The District’s admission criterion is non-discriminatory in that any student regardless of race ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or special education status will be considered for admission.  There are two limiting criteria that apply universally.  Students must be 16 years of age and entering their 5th semester of high school.

 Support Services

The specific support services that are required for each student attending the Bridges Evening Program will be identified in the Student’s Success Plan.  The options for these support services include:  individual and group counseling; assistance with obtaining employment including job searching, resume writing, mock interviewing, individual academic tutoring; assistance with obtaining community based mental health, substance abuse and/or child care services; assistance with securing post secondary financial aid; and assistance with the post secondary application process.  The services described above are available to students five days a week.  The specific schedule is variable depending upon the needs of the students.  Since the Bridges program operates in the evening, students who are receiving other services through the school district will be able to access these services during the school day.  District transportation will be available for students to access these services.  Every effort will be made to schedule appointments so as not to conflict with work, child care or other schedules.
