Administrators at Lakeview Community Schools are making a concerted effort to help the system’s “at risk” students succeed, both academically and socially. Few avenues are being ignored when it comes to advancing the academic standing of the elementary, middle and high schools. In past years, the school has attempted to serve at risk students by hiring new teaching staff. This practice, according to Superintendent Kyle Hamlin, has not been entirely successful. The problem, he says, is that new teachers wind up dealing with all the same social problems as the old — poor attendance, lack of parental involvement, disruptive behavior.
In even the best school systems, some students fall through the cracks. Some schools offer alternative education programs, some don’t. Some of those programs are successful and some aren’t. Despite all efforts, each year schools are faced with a percentage of students who just can’t seem to make it through to graduation day. These are the students the Virtual Learning Center, which opened this year in Lakeview, seeks to help.
