Our President's Message: I started Banner Schools because I believe that each and every child deserves a quality education. Banner partners with public school districts to provide high quality special education, alternative education and education management services for the benefit of the districts and some of their most challenging students. Banner utilizes a goal-oriented approach in its programs. Banner’s faculty teaches students to set goals and then helps students reach those goals. Reaching goals builds the confidence and competence of each and every student enrolled in a Banner program. Banner employs innovative educational methods in its programs. For example, Banner program provides students with valuable work experience utilizing various community resources. In addition to a rigorous educational program, each student is required to work or volunteer for 5 hours per week. As a result, the students gain a sense of accomplishment, become more the world of work, and obtain valuable and marketable skills. In addition to the computer center, Banner uses similar educational methods in other areas of its programs. If you believe that a Banner program would benefit your school district and its students, continue to listen to our online Professional Development symposium and and visit our website at www.bannerschools.com. Thank you for taking the time to review our materials. I look forward to hearing from you. Eric A. Carlton President and Founder
