Alternative Safe Schools 

Safe Schools allow students temporarily removed from school for behavioral violations to continue to receive credits for their studies through alternative educational placements.

 

The primary goal of Safe Schools is to return students to their regular education setting within CPS, while ensuring that each student continues to make progress toward earning a high school diploma. Seventy-seven percent of Safe School students complete the program successfully and return to their home school.
