Welcome to Axtell Park Building

Axtell Park provides opportunities which encourage all students to grow and develop intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically as they work to complete their high school educations in a nontraditional setting.

The high school program at Axtell Park seeks to reduce the number of dropouts, to recover students who have dropped out and wish to return, and to offer students classes required to earn a diploma. The middle school level offers a short term behavioral modification program that addresses academics, behavior, chemical dependency education and prevention, and counseling.

Focus. Fortitude. Finish!

Data Information

All schools in the District are submitting their School Improvement Plan to the Board for approval prior to submitting them to the State. The Plans, developed by a team of parents, community members and staff, serve as a roadmap for future planning and professional development and measure student achievement.

Each school has a building leadership team that meets regularly throughout the year to guide the development, implementation, and evaluation of the School Improvement Plan. Building leadership teams divide the larger plan into smaller segments with the following focuses: staff roles, goals, meetings summary, data processes, priorities and strategies, and the professional development plan.

This document guides the work in order to meet the District’s mission, priority statements from the Strategic Plan, and the achievement goals set by the South Dakota Department of Education.

Middle School Programs

Odyssey

This middle school program offers smaller class sizes and low teacher to student ratios. Odyssey provides students the opportunity to access curriculum through a differentiated approach and supplies them with the tools to succeed academically as well as behaviorally.

FLEX Special Education

The FLEX Program provides a highly structured day program where students are challenged to excel with differentiated academic work to standard and grade level. Students in this program have continued to struggle with behaviors even with extensive supports. FLEX provides students with the academic and behavioral skills to find success in many areas of their lives.

Structured Teach Middle School

These programs are designed to work with students who have cognitive limitations and are experiencing behaviors that make it difficult for the student to succeed in the regular attendance center. Students work on academic and social skills in addition to structured workstations tasks. As students progress toward achieving their goals, they begin a gradual reintegration back to their home school.

Success Academy

At-risk students from middle and high schools learn in a safe, structured setting as they work to improve their behavioral and academic skills. As students progress toward achieving their goals, they begin a gradual reintegration back to their home school.

High School Programs

Assistive Technology Home Base

The Assistive Technology Team provides the necessary support for students in special education to access the general education curriculum, through the use of appropriate assistive technology products, equipment and services. The use of assistive technology will enable students to meet individual educational goals.

Assistive Technology services include:

  • Consultation
  • Evaluation
  • Training
  • Technical Assistance

Behavior Teams

These five teams, who help students with behaviors that are interfering with their ability to learn, consist of a behavioral specialist and behavioral facilitator. These teams provide their services within the home school of the child and work with students, teachers, and administrators to create a plan that will best help that child to succeed.

FLEX Regular Education

FLEX regular education provides an extremely structured and academically challenging environment where students are able to work toward graduation or their GED. A modified schedule is in place so students are able to have work experience.

The FLEX Program provides a highly structured day program where students are challenged to excel with differentiated academic work to standard and grade level.
