    Bedford City School’s Alternative Education Program (COMPASS Academy) is designed to help students succeed through the use of a nontraditional program. Compass Learning, is the program that is being used which is a fully approved Internet-based curriculum. Compass Learning employs rigorous course work that challenges students and helps them develop strong creative, critical thinking skills. Students can be assigned to Compass Academy by the grade level principal upon approval by the building principal. The curriculum is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week on the Internet. We also provide students an on-site teacher for each subject area available, English, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Students can communicate with their teachers in two ways; by e-mail and in person in the alternative program classroom. The program is designed to be an integral part of a student’s total education program. All students attending the alternative education program fall under the jurisdiction of the Bedford City School District’s Student Code of Conduct and the Board of Education’s approved Student Dress Code.
