The Options Program
The Options Program will operate Monday through Friday and will follow the school calendar for hours of operation. The program is designed to, one increase positive re-engagement back into the school environment when students experience "unplanned out-of-school time. Researchers have found most students fall further behind academically, making the return to school even more difficult for both student and teacher. Secondly, HHC's engagement with the student will assist in decreasing the escalation of criminal behavior. Further reported, students suspended or expelled from school, spend this time committing street crimes with others who are also "serving unplanned out-of-school-time".
