Anderson Accelerated orientation gets kids ready for school year

Staff Writer

Students planning to attend Anderson Accelerated filed through the school doors for orientation Thursday evening.
Anderson is a school of choice located here in Big Spring. The school houses Big Spring Independent School District's Alternative Education programs, including the voluntary "Accelerated" alternative program and the Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP), and serves students in grades 7-12.
While students have the choice to opt into the Accelerated Alternative Program at Anderson, the goal for students in DAEP is to help them remain current in their coursework while being removed from their prospective schools for disciplinary reasons.
