Pine River-Backus ALP

Welcome to the Alternative Education Center (AEC) in Pine River. Ours is an alternative program setup to serve students in the Pine River-Backus and Pequot Lakes school districts. Students must be referred to the PRB ALP and cannot enroll directly. If you are behind in credits or in danger of not graduating on time (and are a student of ISD 2714 or ISD 186), talk to your counselor to get more information regarding enrolling.

You will probably have a brand new learning experience at our AEC since we use an independent study model of education. You do a lot of learning on your own but we’re here to help you along the way. Your assignments will vary but will include books, work texts, computer activities and videos.

Students have the opportunity to participate in their resident high school’s activities like sports and graduation while attending classes at the PRB ALP. However, eligibility requirements are like the traditional high schools; if you are missing class or have incomplete work, you jeopardize your eligibility.



available from 8:00 – 3:00 M-F
