Good morning, Erica,
I work at a public high school in Gray, Maine and the Alternative program is woven into the mainstream (with mixed results). I have been involved in Alternative Education in a variety of settings for about 25 years! Perhaps too long? Anyhow, I do have some contacts for mindful connections if you are interested.... AND I am an avid Bernie Sanders supporter.
Feel free to contact me at email@example.com....
