The mission of the Alternative Education Program of the Monterey County Office of Education is to prepare our students for future success by providing a supportive school environment that focuses on increasing academic and prosocial behaviors and skills, while providing functional life skills instruction. We respect and value the unique contributions of each of our students and our role in assisting them in becoming responsible, stable, and contributing members of society.
The Alternative Education Programs mission is deliberately and fully aligned to the four pillars of the Monterey County Office of Education:
- Reach our goals for student achievement for all students
- Ensure the safety and health of our students
- Recruit and retain the most highly qualified teachers and staff
- Provide fiscal accountability for every education dollar
