Community schools provide an alternative educational program for students expelled from various school districts in Sacramento County, and provide an integrated curriculum in academics, life skills, technology, and vocational education and training. The programs use a thematic curriculum approach and serve high-risk youths, including those referred by expulsion, probation, or a School Attendance Review Board; provide challenging academic curriculum; and develop pro-social skills and resiliency.
