SEA Program Description: Spaulding Educational Alternatives (the SEA) is an alternative school within the Barre Unified Union School District (BUUSD) that supports students with IEPs around their social/emotional and academic needs.
The vision for SEA involves 4 major components:

(3) community connections and
(4) a robust training and employment program.
The social-emotional component includes implementing a trauma informed proactive and collaborative problem solving approach as well as 2 full-time licensed mental health clinicians.
The academic component involves experiential and project-based learning, integrated across all activities. Supported by Proficiency Based Graduation Requirements (PBGR) Access Plan, students can learn in a manner and at a pace that is appropriate for them as outlined in their Personalized Learning Plans (PLPs).
The SEA offers vocational learning opportunities in woodworking/carpentry, Automotive/welding, Culinary, and Agriculture within it’s facility and through community partners.

Our robust transition program will include a well-developed and active vocational component. This will include all elements of progressive employment, planning for post-secondary education and training (including college, supported college, trade schools and training programs) and independent living preparation.
