The ESC Alternative are classroom programs offered by the Preble County ESC for the County Schools to use as an alternative for students whose regular school pathway is not working as well as it should. The ESC Alternative seeks to examine a flexible alternative for students at risk of progressing in their regular school environment. In some instances, that flexible alternative is a specialized small classroom for students with significant intellectual and physical disabilities. The ESC Alternative could also be small specialized classrooms for students with emotional/behavioral disabilities. The ESC also has several preschool classrooms for the support of Pre-K students of the County. In all cases, the ESC Alternative are programs requiring the recommendation of the Preble County school district where the student lives.
