Kingston Community High School: A Community Empowerment Project (Workshop 142)
Kingston Community High School, located in an impoverished rural area of Missouri, grew out of a need to provide an alternative to the traditional high school equivalency programs available. This session describes the program, identifying the factors contributing to its success both for individual students and for the larger community. Flexible scheduling makes it possible for young parents to attend school while working or simply to be available to their children as needed. Ongoing curriculum development addresses the real needs of the enrolled population, including effective parenting, child care, non-abusive relationships, and career and job situations.
