Interagency Alternative School Programs
This cooperative interagency effort meets the needs of the whole learner. Each school program is designed to meet the needs of a specific student population.
Interagency Alternative School (IAS) programs provide staff, materials, and direction to nine types of programs at various locations in Fairfax County. Some of these programs are co-funded with other public agencies. IAS programs use an open enrollment model. They accept both Hearings Office and electively-placed students.
Students served in these programs may have exhibited problems in the following areas:
- serious delinquency
- poor school performance
- substance abuse
- criminal behavior
- abuse and neglect
- school refusal
- conditional expulsion
- family dysfunction
