The Phoenix Program serves secondary students who have committed an alcohol or other drug offense under the Student Code of Conduct. The Phoenix Program is an educational intervention for students who are involved in disciplinary action for the first time of an alcohol or other drug-related offense. The Phoenix program consists of two components:
Both student and a parent/guardian/caregiver must attend and successfully complete all aspects of the Phoenix Program in order for the student to remain enrolled in his/her assigned school. Students who do not successfully complete the Phoenix Program are suspended for an additional five days and are reassigned to an alternative school for 90 days.
There are four sites where the Phoenix Program is available:
All Phoenix Program classes are held from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. Attendance for the entire class is required; please be on time. To attend the Phoenix Program, families must first register by calling the Mark Wilcox Center at (863) 291-5355.
