December 2nd, 2015     City schools Community

Teachers at NASTUC (New Albany, South Tippah, Union County Behavior Management Center) received advanced training in Odysseyware on October 9.  Odysseyware has supported Alternative Education initiatives in thousands of schools, districts and communities nationwide. Be it in alternative classrooms, schools-within-schools, alternative schools or second or last-chance schools, Odysseyware’s flexible and customizable curriculum can be utilized to meet the needs of students being served outside of the traditional classroom setting and with unique needs and challenges. As a result, Odysseyware partners have successfully lowered dropout rates, increased graduation rates and provided pathways back into a traditional classroom or to high school equivalency.

Odysseyware’s Alternative Education solutions supports students and adult learners who:

  • Intend to withdraw or have withdrawn from school before graduation
  • Are parents or an expectant parent and are unable to regularly attend the traditional school program
  • Are performing well below grade level
  • Are homebound
  • Are experiencing behavioral issues
