We had the unfortunate experience of one of our children dropping out. He was not successful in the high school nor the alternative school and we were never contacted to try to get him back in school or even told any alternatives aside from correspondence. He did manage to get his GED but I feel if there were other vocational options available and encouraged, this would have been an important resource to both him and us.
They should also have a program for work ethics and things such as interviewing tips. I believe KIC has such a program and this should be offered to all kids. I commend them for their efforts to help these kids.
