Student Support Programs

During the school year, the Student Support Department at Alliance for Progress Charter School provides services and support for students and their families that is designed to identify and address students who are experiencing problems that pose a barrier to their learning and academic success. The Student Support Department is composed of a group of specially trained school staff, and community agency liaisons, who work together to assist students and families by making in-school resources available, and providing information about community resources.

Parents are encouraged to be involved in the process. It is important to note that the Student Support Department does not provide treatment or implement disciplinary consequences. Referrals may be made to the program through the school counselor by staff, family members, community agencies, students or any other concerned persons. Students seeking help may also refer themselves. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Parent Liaison, Ms. Small, at 215.232.4892.
