Student Handbook

FAHS 5 Foundation

At Fairview Alternative High School (FAHS), we believe that everyone is here to learn. In order to provide an opportunity where all can learn and excel, the following philosophy has been established in our learning community.
  • Attend: Our students will attend school all day. Every day.
  • Work: Effort is valued and the work you do in all of your classes will lead you to your goals.
  • Respect: Everyone deserves and gives respect here at FAHS.
  • Restore: No one is perfect. If you make a mistake, fix it.
  • Grow: Learn new things. Grow academically, personally, socially, emotionally, and professionally.

It is important that students have the support needed to be successful in school by their family, school and peers.  

  • Be your own advocate. Stake a claim in the classroom by making sure the teacher knows the real you. 
  • Ask lots of questions and show confusion.
  • Communicate your struggles. Stressors can affect your work. How can others support you positively? 
  • Think of school as your career in training. We want you to be prepared for postsecondary education and work force. 
  • Do more than the minimum so you aren’t creating gaps that are harder to bridge later.
  • Sweat a little. School is your brain gym. You have to work out your muscles, make them a little sore, if you’re going to lift a heavier load later on.
  • Find ways to relate to your coursework. We want to connect what you are learning in the classroom to your life.  
  • Be in class. Don’t jeopardize your own training for the future. 
  • Surround yourself with other students who can help you. You don’t have to be best friends with everyone you seek advice from, but find friends or acquaintances that are rooting for you, the best of you.

Continual Learning Plans

When a student is first enrolled at FAHS, they will create a continual learning plan. The continual learning plan will be updated on a regular basis every six week with a reflection of goals as well as communication with an advisor of the plan in order to meet the goal.

If a student does not meet their goals at the end of the term, the advisor working with that student will create a success plan to help them succeed. The usual reasons a student does not meet their continual learning plan are lack of earning credit and/or excessive absences/tardies. If a student continuously does not progress toward the CLP goal, termination of enrollment could occur based on meeting with the student, family, and administration.
