SPAN assists students in setting attainable goals, both academically and behaviorally. These goals are customized to address the needs of each student. Academic goals are to obtain a GED. Students work at their own pace on individualized classroom assignments and receive one-on-one instruction from education staff.
In addition, each student has an assigned counselor who conducts individual and family counseling as needed. The daily schedule also includes a one-hour group counseling session to provide students with a forum to develop the social and behavioral skills required for effective independent living.
