At Risk and Alternative School programs

At Risk Philosophy: The Carroll Community School District is committed to providing quality education in a school environment that promotes learning. As educators, we realize all students do not experience success in this environment and may need support. It is the goal of the At Risk program to provide a support system for students experiencing difficulties. With the support of Mr. Fischbach and Mr. Pauk, students will be able to realize their potential and have a positve experience at Carroll High School.
Alternative School Philosophy: The Carroll Community School District believes the individual student is the most important person in the educational setting. The alternative education program provides students an alternative opportunity to earn a high school diploma in a stting that recognizes and provides for their individual needs. With the support of Mr. Kasperbauer and Mrs. Renning, students will be able to earn a high school diploma.
