Alt Ed Week 1 Tri 3Hello and welcome to Alternative Education. Just a few reminders about expectations in here. All students are expected to work in class. You should get about a packet done a week. Everyone is expected to get through 2 classes in a trimester. This is how you begin to make up credits you are deficient in. We are in the downward end of this school year. Lets end well. Seniors I will be meeting often with you making sure that you are accomplishing what needs to be so you can graduate this year.

Alt Ed Week8 Tri 2We are starting week 8 this week. For those students who do not get their first class done by the end of this week they are not likely to be allowed back into Alt Ed next trimester. Progress reports were due today and will be mailed out this week. Some students need to pick up their grades some. Do not forget that you can check your child's attendance and grades on Parent Assist.
Alt Ed Week4 Tri 2We are into week 4 of the second trimester. You should be working on packet 4 to be on track. We are getting close to midterms. We will be checking in with you this week on how you are doing.

Rules and Regulations
Alt Ed Week2 Tri 2We are off to a good start this trimester. Students are motivated and getting work turned in. I hope it stays this way. Students in alt ed are required to get 2 classes done. The way the classes are set up makes it easy to follow. We are in 12 week trimesters and classes are set into 6 packets per class. So if they average 1 packet a week they will easily get 2 classes done. If you ever have any questions please feel free to contact me. Best way is by email (

Happy Holidays.
Alt Ed week 11Sorry missed a post. Short weeks seem to through me off and I forget things.

We have this week and one more part week left in this trimester. You should be finishing up your second class I am hoping this week, if not by finals week at least. If you do not finish the class you do not receive credit for that class. You must finish the entire class to get any credit and a passing grade.

Remember I do not give out packets ahead. You must finish a packet to get a packet. So if you are hoping to get 2 or 3 packets for the Thanksgiving break you better make other plans. It is crunch time and some of you need to get a move on. I know you can all get work done, so show me.

ALT ED Week 7We are officially over half way thru the trimester. To be on track this trimester you should be done with one class by now. If you are not, you have til next week to get it done otherwise you will not be allowed to start your next class and will be in jeopardy of not being able to stay in alternative ed classes. Please ask your children how they are doing and if you have any questions or want to know more please email me and I will let you know how they are doing.

Mr. Barr
ALT ED Week 5We are almost to the half way point. You should be working on packet 5. Next week is a short week as there is PSAT tests on the 13th and no school on the 15th. You really need to keep on track. I will be talking to all of you again here soon about all your classes. Lets keep up the good work.

Alt Ed week 3Welcome to Alternative Education. I look forward to a productive trimester. I am not able to put your child's grades on ESIS so if you want to know how they are doing please email me and I will let you know. Also, if you have any other concerns or questions please contact me thru email. I am currently only at the high school in the mornings so email is the most effective way to get in contact with me. My email is

Just a quick note that the expectations in alternative education is that you get a packet done a week. We are in our third week of this trimester, so you should be working on packet 3. Remember that if you do not finish 2 classes in here and do well in your other classes you will not be allowed back in here next trimester.

So lets do a good job and stay on top of our school work.
