What is the Expulsion Program
The Cherry Creek School District’s Expulsion Program provides educational services for middle and high school students who have been expelled from school. 
The program provides expelled students with academic instruction in mathematics and language arts, with the goal that the student maintains and increase skills in these areas.  Small-group processing sessions help students effectively deal with situations that, in the past, may have gotten them into trouble.  The Expulsion Program staff works closely with the students' families through extensive intake interviews and frequent communication.  The program collaborates with community agencies, including Social Services, Probation Department, community mental health centers and, and individual therapist with whom students are involved.
Mission Statement
The purpose of the Expulsion Program (EP) is to provide quality mathematics and English education for expelled students who reside within the Cherry Creek School District.  It also serves as the Interim Alternative Emotional Placement for students with a disability that need such services due to placement or discipline determinations affecting students with disabilities.
Admission and Attendance
Once expelled, the student and parents schedule a meeting with the EP faculty to learn about the program's educational and behavior policies.  Students earn the privilege of continued enrollment in the EP by complying with its rules, district policy, and the superintendent's requirements for early re-admission candidates.  The latter may include mandatory UA's, counseling, and/or substance education or treatment.
When the expulsion term expires, students enroll in their designated Cherry Creek School.  Early re-admission candidates have their status evaluated by the home school and the EP staff several weeks prior to the superintendent's target date.  If approved, early re-admission students return to their home school on probationary status.
Students who cannot attend the EP on a full-time basis may request mathematics and English curricula that are available each week.
Student Support
To complement the academic curriculum the EP focuses on academic and social skills pertinent to students' long-term success in a traditional learning environment.

Mental health support for students includes social skills development, decision-making strategies, self-esteem building, and interpersonal relationships. 

As the Interim Alternative Educational Placement/Setting for students with disabilities this program provides services that give the student with a disability access to the general education curriculum and benefit on the student's IEP goals and objectives.
