Many students are expected to take advantage of the opportunities at Alice High School's Evening School, not just for credit recovery or advancement, but also to gain enrichment on portions of the TAKS test they may have found difficult and challenging the first time around.

AHS Evening School this fall will run from Sept. 17 to Dec. 5 on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m. Registration for courses will start on Monday and end Friday.

Registration will be open every day this week from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the AHS counselor's office.

Out-of-district students may register on Sept. 17, which is also the first day of class.

"Evening School classes are offered for credit recovery and for advancement," AHS lead counselor Bonnie Cavazos said in an announcement this week. "Students who have failed a class or have lost credit because of attendance should sign up in order to maintain credits required for graduation."

Students currently enrolled in Alice ISD and in any area school, grades eight to 12, may participate in Evening School with counselor approval. AISD students are eligible for tuition free classes. Out-of-district students will be charged $100 (cash only) for a semester course.

Ninety percent attendance is required for students to receive credit. Absences from Evening School will result in withdrawal from the class. After the third absence, the student will be dropped from the class. Discipline issues will also result in withdrawal. For those students who sign up for courses, the last day to withdrawal and receive a refund is Sept. 26.
