Crawford said as applications come in there is a common thread among those interested in attending Next. That thread is a need for an alternative classroom environment and teaching method.
There will be four professional teachers on staff at Next. Krieger and Crawford also will teach. Students will be assigned advisors as part of their learning plan.
“The kids will have an opportunity to create what that learning will look like,” Krieger said. “There needs to be options, there needs to be choices.”
