Indian Plains School Program Overview


Credit Recovery Program
 
The school program primarily services fourth year students who are behind in credits in order to graduate with their class on time.  A smaller setting is beneficial to these students to help them be academically successful.  The program takes in students from Metea Valley, Neuqua Valley and Waubonsie Valley High Schools in Indian Prairie District 204.  Credit recovery students are recommended by their home high school guidance departments on the basis of credit status, attendance and behavior.  Students may not enroll directly at Indian Plains without having been recommended by the home schools.

The credit recovery program is a choice program.  Students commit to working within program guidelines which include continued academic progress and consistent, acceptable behavior and attendance.  If students do not meet these guidelines, they may be exited from the program. 

The program is intended to help students meet graduation requirements by offering the senior required courses as well as a small group of elective courses.  All curriculum used is standards-aligned and board approved.  The level of academic competency is equal to that of the home schools.

The program implements the Positive Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Program which focuses on our school values of respect, responsibility, and relationship.  This emphasis on positive social interaction recognizes students for their good behavior and their work toward achieving the goal of a school where all are respectful, responsible, and foster productive relationships.

 

Students with Special Education Supports
 

Indian Plains also services ninth through twelfth grade students who receive special education supports who may need a smaller learning environment to be academically and behaviorally successful.  The program serves students from Metea Valley, Neuqua Valley, and Waubonsie Valley High Schools in Indian Prairie District 204.  Students are placed at Indian Plains through the I.E.P. process from their home high schools.  Students may not enroll directly at Indian Plains without having been staffed into the program by home school PPS team recommendation and parent decision.

Students receiving special education supports attend Indian Plains not only to work on their academic needs but also their behavioral and social growth.  The Positive Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Program focuses on our school values of respect, responsibility and relationship.  This emphasis on positive social interaction recognizes students for their good behavior and their work toward achieving the goal of a school where all are respectful, responsible and foster productive relationships.

The academic program offered for I.E.P. students is standards-based and geared toward fulfilling district and state graduation requirements.  Instruction meets the needs of students by providing board-approved curriculum with modifications and accommodations based on students’ individual education plans.
