Lee V. Pollard High School (LPHS) is an alternative school within the Corona-Norco Unified School District in Corona, California, and is located the south-central portion of the city. The school services students from the five comprehensive high schools of our district. The primary purpose of LPHS is two-fold: (1) to provide an opportunity for credit recovery and (2) to assist students within the district who have exceptional educational needs reach their goal of graduating from high school.
Enrollment is determined through an application and interview process, which criteria include attendance, discipline and lack of credits for graduation. The interview team consists of an administrator or teacher, a counselor, the student and his parent/guardian. At that time programs are discussed, student needs are reviewed, parental concerns are addressed, and an appropriate program choice is made. Because student progress is closely monitored, a change in programs sometimes occurs after a student has begun at LPHS to ensure his educational success.
