Choices Program

  • The goal of the Choices Program is not only to educate students in the area of academics, but also to help them grow socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. Students who are placed in the Choices Program require skill development in many of the following areas: social awareness, self-advocacy, responsible decision-making, self-awareness, self-management, and emotional regulation. Students are taught a variety of strategies to strengthen self-discipline, self-motivation, and overall attitude. The underlying objective of this program is to provide every student the opportunity to learn from their choices through direct teacher/case-management guidance, behavior intervention, coaching, active problem solving, and goal setting. The social worker and psychologist play a critical role in collaborating with the classroom teachers and instructional assistants to support students in reaching their goals, growing as individuals, preparing for post-secondary success. Lake Park has a Choices Program at both campuses.
