Opportunity Program

Hello and welcome to the (COPE) Program at the EOC!

Hello and welcome to the Creative Options for Positive Education (COPE)/Opportunity Program at the EOC! The COPE program is designed for middle and high school students who have been placed on a suspended expulsion from their comprehensive school site. The Opportunity Program is an alternative placement, for the remaining portion of the school year, for middle school students who need a high level of behavioral, social, and academic support (see your middle school of attendance for more information).

Students in the COPE/Opportunity Program are in a self-contained class for their entire school day. The curriculum is based on grade level content standards and each student’s individual schedule and course requirements. This program is designed to allow students with credit deficiencies the opportunity to graduate within a timely manner. A strong emphasis will be put on credit recovery/course completion and building positive social/behavioral skills for each student according to their unique needs.

Students attend one session, three hours per day, five days each week

  • AM Class Times 7:30 to 10:38am
  • PM Class Times: 11:15 to 2:23pm

The COPE/Opportunity School format is mostly independent study in a classroom setting with some direct instruction.

Students in COPE/Opportunity must:

  • complete 2 hours of community service per week (COPE Only)
  • complete 1 hour of counseling per week (COPE Only)
  • write a letter of apology to the administrator at the school that they were expelled from (COPE Only)
  • complete at least 2 credits per week
  • develop a positive attitude
