Welcome to Alternative Programs.  We are pleased to provide programs, services, and resources to students and families throughout the Poway Unified School District.  These programs, services, and resources include appropriate instructional strategies, sound curriculum, personal development activities, a strong partnership between home and school, and a systematic approach to prevention and early intervention. Utilizing a variety of strategies allows us the opportunity to assist and support parents in planning for their child's unique talents and abilities to reach his/her greatest potential.
