LBUSD approves school for troubled teens
On Tuesday this week the Long Beach Board of Education voted to allow a group of local religious to open a school for troubled teens.
The school will not be religous in nature, but will be designed to help kids out who need a second chance. The school will target many kids that have been put on probation by the court system.
Rev. Garon Harden of Greater Open Door Church of God in Christ said that the school's approval was a dream come true for the alliance.
"We have in our city a lot of students who are left behind, not making the grade," Harden said. "We want to give these kids a second chance, a third chance, to just be able to compete."
The schools will be operated on nine different campuses with a maximum capacity of 400 students. The hope is, that with so many different campuses that they will be able to serve many kids who would not be able to travel long distances.
The school is set to open Sept 24th.
