Twilight School almost ready (N&R)

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. The News & Record’s Amanda Lehmert had a short piece yesterday on the new GCS Twilight School, set to open in January on the Smith Academy campus.

Student recruiting is already underway, Lehmert reports.

See this excerpt:

Starting early in the new year, school officials will recruit students for the “twilight high school” — an afternoon program for teenagers who are just a few classes shy of graduation.

“We are beginning to look for those students who have a great chance of graduating in 2008,” said John Morris, chief student services officer for Guilford County Schools. “We want to get them back first.”

The Guilford County school board approved the program in September.

The school — which will be located at the Smith Academy and does not yet have a name — is designed for students who don’t fit the “cookie-cutter high school mold,” Morris said.

That might be a girl who became pregnant.

Or a boy who needs to work because his parents lost their jobs.


E.C. 🙂
