Welcome to the Judy Jester Learning Center
The Judy Jester Learning Center (JJLC -Aternative school -A school) is designed and implemented to benefit those students who have exhibited problems adjusting to traditional education settings. We offer an opportunity for placement of such students in a separate setting and provide an atmosphere conducive to changing patterns of inappropriate academic behavior and/or inadequate effort. The number one goal is to assist students in the development of self-esteem, self control, improved socialization skills, a positive attitude toward learning, and increased academic achievement. Students are admitted according to "at-risk" criteria, upon referral by school personnel. Each school should have a committee of school officials and/or other professionals to make recommendations for admittance. At this time, only students in 9th-12th grade will be admitted to the alternative program.
The Judy Jester Learning Center campus is also home to the Behavioral Center (formerly known as COPS).
The Behavioral Center is designed and implemented to benefit those students who have exhibited problems adjusting to traditional education settings and rules in lieu of suspension or expulsion. It offers an opportunity for placement of such students in a separate setting and provides an atmosphere conducive to changing patterns of inappropriate behavior and/or inadequate effort in academics.
In August 2023, an Elementary/Middle Behavioral classroom was added to our campus. We are now able to accommodate grades K-7 and 8-12 in separate classrooms.
