Students entering this program must be able to benefit from a short-term intervention, and must have demonstrated a willingness to engage in active problem-solving and change.

Students usually complete the program by the last day of their suspension. If further disciplinary issues arise, the original suspension may be extended or an additional suspension may be imposed to be served consecutively.
