|COURT AND COMMUNITY SCHOOLS: PCOE operates a Court and Community Schools program for at-risk students. Students are referred to these programs by the Juvenile Court, Placer County Probation Department or local school districts.|
PATHWAYS CHARTER SCHOOL includes:
- iLEARN ACADEMY - an Independent Study program serving families with children in grades K-8 who desire to educate their children at home. Pathways maintains a core belief that home study is a viable educational alternative. Students of all ability levels may thrive in independent study, mainly due to two strong components: (1) one-to-one instruction and (2) high parent involvement, both at their maximum in a home study environment.
- CARE (Early Intervention-located on school district campuses) - a County Community School program serving seventh through ninth grade students (7-9) offered in partnership with identified middle schools and high schools in Placer County. Schools that host CARE classes will implement comprehensive Response to Intervention including Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS).
- iCARE (Intensive CARE), located on non-district campuses, is a County Community School program serving seventh through twelfth (7-12) graders who are probation referred, expelled or placed by parent, probation and/or local school agreement. iCARE classes provide a small, self-contained setting with individual student attention.
