SHS Sports Medicine Program

The Sports Medicine students at Smackover High School are doing mock physicals using their skills to evaluate their class partners. These skills include musculoskeletal exam, blood pressure, pulse, vision screening, and reflexes.

Mrs. Morgan Atkins is the instructor and the athletic trainer for the district.

To be a Sports Medicine Completer at Smackover High School, a student must successfully pass the following year-long courses:

  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Fundamentals of Sports Medicine
  • Injury Assessment

ALE Facilitator Recognized

Mrs. Janet Philips (right), JAG instructor and ALE Facilitator at Smackover High School, was recently recognized at the 34th annual National Training Seminar held in Las Vegas as a JAG Outstanding Specialist. Her successful implementation of the JAG model has led to extraordinary achievement for Smackover High School students since its inception. Also pictured is Mrs. Jan Henderson, Smackover High School Principal.

The Smackover-Norphlet School District ALE Program is designed to support ninth through twelfth grade students who are at risk for not graduating from high school.  The program provides these students with meaningful intervention and an adapted or altered learning environment to meet their educational needs.  The focus of the program is to provide the academic, social, and behavioral resources necessary for enrolled students to learn academic content while also acquiring the skills and strategies to successfully negotiate a twenty-first century world.

For more information about the ALE program at Smackover High School, please contact Principal Jan Henderson.
