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.
