Faith-based nonprofit client’s proposal increases education program by one-third. (September 3, 2012)
St. Charles Youth & Family Services has been awarded a contract by Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS), which will allow the organization to increase by one-third the number of youth in grades 6-12 it serves in an alternative education program. The nonprofit submitted a proposal in response to an MPS request for proposals to provide services for youth who are unable to remain in their school and must be reassigned to an alternative education partner due to behavioral issues.
The goal of the Behavioral Reassignment program is to provide an academic education that meets district-wide and state standards as well as assist youth in developing the social and self-management skills necessary to return to a traditional school environment. MPS Board of School Directors approved a nearly $520,000 contract authorizing St. Charles Youth & Family Services to serve 60 students during the 2012-2013 school year.
