The Story

Moss Point, MS

Moss Point Alternative Learning Center offers an alternative school for students who may not flourish in a traditional school setting. Many of the students have had behavioral issues or are considered high risk due to being two or more grades behind from where they should be. The Moss Point Alternative Learning Center staff is dedicated to empower these students and ensure the academic gaps decrease.

Serving approximately 350 students per year, Moss Point Alternative Learning Center found that a major key to having a successful transition program for high-risk students to get back on track is through incorporating technology-based learning. “Students that are high risk tend to work better in smaller settings,” said Searcy Kay, school principal. By leveraging computer-based learning, students are able to learn in smaller virtual classrooms while also experiencing the same requirements of a traditional classroom.

With standardized tests transitioning to being completely online, students must be comfortable and efficient with technology to meet the standardized testing standards. “It is imperative to expose students to computer usage on a daily basis so that when it is time to take standardized tests they will be proficient in computer use,” Searcy said. As the need for computers grow, the alternative learning center is in need of more computers.

The Moss Point Alternative Learning Center staff hopes to raise $6,500 through RedBasket.org to purchase 28 laptops and a computer cart. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation and help Moss Point Alternative Learning Center provide the best education for their students to succeed and empower them to become world class citizens.
