WEEK ZERO PROGRAM
Week Zero @ The Center for Innovative Learning is a powerful holistic approach encompassing the right blend of discipline, with the focus being on the habits of the mind and the heart. Week Zero is a venue to severe disciplinary referral level students, in grades 6th – 12th, enrolled at the Center for Innovative Learning. Week Zero provides us the opportunity to be proactive in our approach, and being rehabilitative as opposed to being punitive, in our actions. Giving a student a consequence, but never teaching them how to effectively handle the situation does not give the student the capacity to be self-sustaining in the event a similar situation arises. Therefore, Week Zero is designed to teach students life skills to draw from when faced with challenges life brings. The short term goal is to equip students with strategies to get them back into their home school with a new attitude. Life skills, in combination, with an acclimation to the CIL campus, is what Week Zero offers all 6th-12th grade students the in first week of Alternative Placement.
