Reengagement Programs

Our mission is to provide meaningful and measurable learning experiences for students who have experienced behavioral challenges, academic difficulties, or barriers to acquiring successful matriculation in a traditional learning environment. EBR is committed to providing a positive, student centered, safe, and academically comprehensive program that is sensitive to the varied learning styles of all students. Each alternative education program or school will meet the unique needs of students and equip them with the tools needed to be a thriving citizen in the community, nation, and world.

In partnership with the iCare Department, EBR’s Reengagement Programs supports training and implementation of Restorative Practices in East Baton Rouge Parish Schools. The use of restorative practices in schools and throughout the community encourages the use of strategies to support students and adults to learn from the experience that led to the conflict, examine attitude, beliefs, and behaviors which may have contributed to the conflict. Our goal is to reduce suspensions and expulsions district wide and ultimately influence changing mindsets of adults and students in schools.
