      The Georgetown Alternative Program is the Discipline Alternative Education Program for GISD students in grades 6-12. Students are placed in the G.A.P. for violating the Student Code of Conduct. These students may be affected by factors including drugs, alcohol, inability to function in the traditional school environment, family issues, academic difficulties, or emotional difficulties. The G.A.P. seeks to provide these students with an environment that promotes positive decision-making, self-discipline, positive social skills, and improved academic performance. The Georgetown Alternative Program began in 1996, and it incorporates both a military style discipline component and an educational component. The military component addresses student discipline, character building, decision-making, and self-control, while the educational component concentrates on improving academic skills and performance.
