THE OPPORTUNITY SCHOOL (TOS): On Wednesday October 23, 2013 the Opportunity School will be having an informational/Awards dinner meeting at 6:00 p.m. here at the Marshall Alternative High School.
What is The Opportunity School? TOS is an opportunity for your student to be dual enrolled at the Marshall Alternative High School and Kellogg Community College. Due to a generous grant from the WK Kellogg Foundation and Marshall Public Schools, students who are accepted may take college classes at the Eastern Center. This is extra work and a big commitment for the students, but gives them a head start on a college education, and allows them to earn credit for both high school and college classes. Attendance, focus, and a positive attitude are a must for success in the Opportunity School, and our students who have completed the college classes are very proud of themselves, and much more mature as they graduate and prepare to enter college or trade school, jobs, and the adult life. Parent involvement and support are also crucial due to increased support needed for homework, attendance, and other obstacles which may be encountered during this time. Thousand of Marshall Public School, Kellogg Community College, and Kellogg Foundation Grant dollars are spent on each student taking the KCC classes, so an interview with the parent and student is required, as well as a contract.
On Wednesday, October 23 not only will dinner be provided but students already in the Opportunity School will be presenting their experiences and will receive awards, and our college instructors will also be present to talk with you. Join us for a light supper, and an enjoyable evening to hear more about this wonderful chance.
Please call 517-629-7547 to let us know you would like to attend and how many will be attending. If you would like more information on the TOS program please, contact Kathy Doud, Counselor at the Marshall Alternative High School.
