Alternative School

The Jefferson County ESC Alternative School (JCESCAS) is operated by the Jefferson County ESC to serve the JCESC consortium's school districts' educational needs.

The JCESCAS is partnering with Coleman Professional Services of Jefferson County.  This partnership will provide wrap-around behavioral health care and other services that can support learning and development for young people who are at risk of being left behind.
 
The JCESCAS will provide all curriculum instruction for the students that are enrolled.  Our goal is to have each student receive an individual education plan, coping skills, and career readiness awareness.  The curriculum will be based on standards aligned with Ohio's state testing.  Students will receive online and group instruction during the day.  In addition, Coleman Professional Services will provide counseling on a daily basis.
 
Students will be required to be enrolled in the Alternative School for a minimum of five days.  The Alternative School will provide a five-day evaluation report for each student, with a percentage grade for Language Arts (ELA), Math, Science, Social Studies, Current Events, and Career Central.  Each evaluation will have a summary of strengths and improvements needed for each individual student.
 
The Alternative School employs a director, social educator, and resource officer, and Coleman Professional Services provides two licensed counselors for individual and group counseling.  The services provided at the Alternative School will give the student an opportunity to succeed academically and progress to graduation outside the traditional class setting.  The program is designed to instruct students to develop appropriate behaviors necessary to return to their home school program and function within acceptable behavioral norms of the community.
 
The JCESCAS is located at Coleman Professional Services Building, 3200 Johnson Road, Steubenville, Ohio.  The Alternative School occupies the first floor of the building.
