The Waterloo Educational and Behavioral Center removes classroom distractions that drag down the achievement of many struggling students. Alternative Learning Center administrators contend that the online, go-at-your-own-pace curriculum combined with a single location for all programs has more benefit than cost savings, though. They point to the success of students like Brase at WEBC and her decision to move on to Expo High. “I think it’s an eye-opening experience for our kids to find that they can be successful,” said Brenton Shavers, principal of the Alternative Learning Center. Educators want to capitalize on that success rather than sending students back to the situation they were struggling in at their home school.
