Stettler Outreach School moves to larger facility to accommodate growth

A new environment - Outreach school principal Roe Desrosiers says their new facility is to help them become a center for educational and community services

Stettler Outreach School has moved to a larger space that is more accessible for everyone.

Operated by Clearview School Division, the outreach school is now located on 51 Street in the former building of ATB Financial, across from Stettler Legion, moving out of its former location at the northwest corner of Main Street and 50 Avenue on the upper floor.

“We had outgrown our former location with the growing number of students,” said Roe Desrosiers, principal of the school that changed its name last spring from Teen Team Cooperative Outreach School.

“We have a much higher profile at this location.”

“We are thrilled that our school is on ground floor, it is wheelchair accessible and we have our own parking lot.”

“It’s all turning into a very functional space.”

Stettler Outreach School now has over 4,500 square feet of space in the building leased by Clearview School Division, much bigger than the 3,800 square feet in the former location.

With 53 registered students this year, ranging in age from 14 years to 27, the school provides learning opportunities where manners, social obligations, life skills and leadership qualities are as much a part of the school’s everyday interactions as the distance-learning academic curriculum.

In its 14 years of operation, the outreach school has gained a high reputation across Alberta.

“Other non-traditional school in the province are sending their staff to our outreach school to learn from the school’s established programs in trying to address the various needs of independent, at-risk and adult students, an ever-growing provincial and national demographic groups that is often unable to fit into traditional settings,” said Desrosiers.

As well, the outreach school is the new drop-off location for Coats for Kids.
