Determinant Sentence (DS)
Students who went before the Disciplinary Hearing Authority of Dickson County Schools may be placed at NDA with a Determinant Sentence
In Lieu of Suspension (ILS)
Students who are given an out of school suspension have the option to come to NDA. They will be placed in a separate environement from those students who attend NDA and will work on assignments from their school so the suspension does not affect their grade
Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)
Some students with an IEP need extra support that cannot be provided at other schools. This decision is made as a team which includes the parents/gaurdians.
All students enrolled in Dickson County's Distance Learning are housed under NDA.
Our ultimate goal is to return all students to their home school with the tools they need for success.
