    • Interested students must attend one information Session with a parent or guardian for the term they want to enter.  They do not need to attend both sessions.  Families should bring a copy of the transcript and IEP, if relevant.
    • All information Sessions are held in the school cafeteria.
    • If there is a larger number of interested students than we can admit for any term, we will select a group we can serve and then work with PPS Reconnection Services to help those students find another school to enroll in or go on our wait list for a future term at Alliance at Meek.

    Alliance at Meek enrolls new students during the first five terms of each school year.  All new students will spend their first 6-week term at Meek in the Discovery Program, which gives students social-emotional skills for school success.  Students can earn Psychology, Health, and PE credit in Discovery.  After the first  Term, They will be able to attend regular academic and vocational classes at Meek.
