ALC is a big step forward

The New Prague Area Schools is sending a letter this week to the Minnesota Department of Education stating its intent to open an Alternative Learning Center (ALC) in the district.

The move is necessary, school officials say, because the Carver-Scott Co-op is closing the ALC it operates in Lydia and another one in Chaska. Shakopee and Waconia are also considering a similar move.

The letter does not commit the district to following through on the ALC, but it does give the district the option to do so, if it is feasible.
