When Cass County officials pulled the plug on county funding for a special school a few years ago, the future of alternative education looked bleak.

But last year, the Logansport Community School Corporation revived the alternative school concept, opening the Logansport Learning Academy. This week, a report on the school produced some good findings. Despite the loss of its principal in the middle of the school year, the school will graduate 21 seniors while another 29 juniors will be invited back this fall for their senior year.

Unlike the former Cass County Alternative School, students from Lewis Cass, Pioneer and Caston were not included in this school for at-risk students.

Given the success of the academy in its initial year, the question of expanding it to include other schools, is the focus of the Pharos-Tribune Sound Off question:

Should representatives of Lewis Cass, Pioneer, Caston and potentially other schools consider partnering with the Logansport Community School Corporation to send more at-risk students to the Logansport Learning Academy?

Callers have until 5 p.m. Friday to respond to the question by phoning 722-5000, Ext. 5195. Outside local exchanges, they may dial toll-free at (800) 676-4125, Ext. 5195. Callers are asked to leave their name, daytime phone number and opinion.
