ALASKA’ S CENTRALIZED CORRESPONDENCE STUDY PROGRAM

/

During the 1984-85 school year, CCS served 1,294 students and expected to serve at least that number during the 1985-86 year. “Around 64% of our population live in urban areas but use CCS as an alternative to the regular school program. Sixteen percent live in isolated areas and can’t attend a local school. Nine percent are from families who are traveling for extended periods of time. The remainder are adults studying for the high school equivalency test” (ADE, 1986, p. 3).
