Chewelah Alternative Program operates under the Washington State Alternative Learning Experience (ALE) requirements. The graduation requirements for a high school diploma are consistent with Chewelah School District Policy 2410. Chewelah Alternative Programs recognizes and allows for different paths to accomplish those educational requirements. We currently offer a variety classes in online, onsite, and remote course types. We work with each student and family to determine the best type of program for the individual. For high school students, we have many options when structuring the course load of a student to help them be successful and achieve a high school diploma. We are also able to offer an Open Doors Reengagement Program for students that need options other than a high school diploma.
