The Oklahoma State Department of Education, Alternative Education Department is committed to providing guidance and support in order to promote excellence in education. Pirate Connect provides wrap-around services for students, including academic, career readiness, life skills, and counseling supports as part of each student's learning plan. Oklahoma uses alternative education programs to reduce dropouts and enhance graduation rates across the state. While every program must incorporate 16 research-based components that include individualized and effective instruction, clear and measurable program goals and objectives, counseling and social service components, and individualized graduation plans for all students, the approach of each district or cooperative program reflects local differences.
