Holt Central High School may be getting a ¬†change in its educational curriculum from alternative classroom education to an online education. On Feb. 10, the Holt School Board discussed options to enhance the success of Holt Central High School, whose graduation rate is less than 15%.¬† This rate is especially low in comparison to Holt Senior High School’s graduation rate of 81%. The meeting’s objective was to introduce a national alternative education program-for-hire called Ombudsman, which is already being used in the Waverly School District. Stan Kogut, superintendent of the Ingham Intermediate School District and other representatives gave a presentation highlighting the program and the success it can provide for the Holt School District.
