40 Years of Service
2014 marked the 40th anniversary of the state’s only network of small, community-based alternative high schools – the Alternative Schools Network (ASN). On Thursday, November 13, 2014 the ASN celebrated its 40th anniversary with a gala event held at the Garfield Park Conservatory. Over 270 people were in attendance and 25 legislators (Aldermen, State Representatives and State Senators) were awarded for their continued support of the ASN and its programs which service youth who dropped out of traditional educational settings. It was an incredible event that highlighted the work of an incredible organization – one that continues to service disenfranchised youth and communities.
