Finding a Different Path

In spite of the best efforts of teachers and administrators, some students simply don’t seem to fit into the traditional public school model. In the Nebraska panhandle, Valley Alternative Learning Transitioning School (VALTS) is their ticket to success.

VALTS is designed to serve struggling students referred by principals or counselors by providing a different path to regaining their confidence and motivating them to earn their diplomas. VALTS teachers credit their relationships with students, built on open communication and deep respect for one another, as the reason VALTS works when all other strategies have failed. Watch to learn more about what makes VALTS so successful!
