Welcome to Coos Bay alternative education for students’ grades K-12. I am Greg Mulkey, and it is with great honor that I serve as principal of our Alternative Learning Center. Having been an educator/administrator for 35 years and serving in this position has allowed me to view alternative placements in a different light. It is my belief that we are filling an essential role in education by providing non-traditional placement options for today’s youth that have trouble assimilating to a traditional classroom environment.
The Alternative Learning Center’s mission is to provide a way for our students to continue their education in a non-traditional setting. We offer three programs in our educational setting that allow a variety of options for our students to achieve success; Destinations Academy, Resource Link, and GED. Each program caters to different grade levels. While Resource Link provides options for K-12 learners the Destinations program provides schooling for grades 9-12 and GED provides the third option for high school students.
Destinations Academy is designed to give high school students the opportunity to earn a diploma and/or offers alternative pathways towards graduation. Our class sizes are small so that we can give students as much individual attention as they need. These three programs allow for optimal growth for students in a non-traditional environment. The Alternative Learning Center staff dedicates itself to helping K-12 students prepare for high school and high school students earn their high school diploma, as well as being prepared for the next stage of their life, college or career.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about the Alternative Learning Center. We look forward to working with you to meet the needs of your student(s).
