Secondary Options

Promoting Options That Lead To Success

Continuous Student Learning in a Caring, Engaging Environment



    Secondary Options is for high school students who are interested in creating a program to fit their particular needs in order to find success. It is also designed to encourage students, who have left school to re-enter high school to earn a diploma. Credit is earned through demonstrated mastery of class assignments using a variety of assessment models, as well as some course work available on an independent basis.

  • SCHEDULE FOR MARCH 29,30, and 31

    Dear Parents, Guardians, and/or Students, Due to Black Hills High School schedule shift, next week March 29-31, we will operate under a different schedule to accommodate graduating seniors as well. School will be dismissed at 10:15, so graduating seniors (who have 30 hours of community service completed) can perform exit interviews. We encourage students with cars to utilize study hall from 10:15-2:30 but cannot make it mandatory but buses will leave at 10:20. There will be no transportation to New Market Skills Center in the middle of the day or after school. Please call Dave Myers (360-709-7805) if you have any questions or concerns.

    Dear Parents, Friends, Guardians and Graduating Students of Secondary Options, the commencement this year will take place Monday, June 12th, in the Performing Arts Center, at the south side of Black Hills High School, located at 7741 Littlerock Road. We are asking seniors to arrive no later than 6:15 PM, so the ceremony will start promptly at 7:00 PM. This ceremony is open to all that want to attend, and we encourage you to invite and bring as many friends and family members as you want to celebrate this event. Secondary Options does not order or sell invitations, but we will be more than happy to help students design their own. Kinko’s also can be helpful with this. All graduating seniors must meet the following requirements before a student is permitted by district rules to be involved in graduation exercises. They must earn 22 specific credits, 30 hours of community service, pass state exams in reading, writing, science, and algebra or geometry as well as complete an exit interview. If students or parents have questions about these requirements, please call me, and we can either discuss it on the phone or arrange a time to meet. Un-returned books or fines will not prevent one from participating, but it will hold up the actual delivery of the diploma. Seniors should remember to purchase and pick up their cap and gowns at Secondary Options. The price of the cap and gowns are $30.00, and they should arrive the first week in May. If you have any questions, contact Debbie Center at 709-7760. After the commencement, there will be a short reception across the courtyard in the Secondary Options school facility. There will be cake and punch as well as an opportunity for seniors to be photographed with family members, friends and peers. In the past, this has been an event not to be missed, so be sure to set aside Monday, June 12th, 2017 for this special occasion. Again, if you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (360) 709-7760.
