    .Enrollment Procedures for Students

    Prospective Alliance at Meek students must attend an information session with a parent or guardian and fill out an application prior to applying.  

    Following the information session, IEP records are requested and reviewed to ensure that we can serve the student and a wait list is created if we have greater demand than space available.  All new students must successfully complete Discovery upon enrollment.  

    Students who do not successfully complete Discovery may be referred to Reconnection Services or other arrangements are made until the next term and are given priority for re-enrollment the following term.  These students do not need to go through the information session process or apply again.
