information from a sample of 1,699 public school districts on
Alternative Schools and Programs for students at risk of educational
failure. The initial survey was requested by the Office of Safe and
Drug-Free Schools (OSDFS) in the U.S. Department of Education to
provide a snapshot of alternative schools and programs for students at
risk of educational failure within the nation's public school
districts. This follow up survey will provide information on schools
and programs that use entities other than the school district to
administer the programs and will collect information on the identities
of these entities.
