Lloyde High School was announced as one of 31 schools to be named a 2019 Model Continuation High School, sustaining another three-year designation after earning the recognition in 2016. The schools were recognized for their innovative teaching approaches that enable students with diverse and challenging needs to complete their high school education. "These schools have created exemplary programs and strategies that provide students with a second chance at academic success," Thurmond said. "The commitment demonstrated by the teachers and administrative staff, combined with a culture of caring that focuses on the emotional and education needs of the unique populations they serve, are what make these continuation high schools the best examples of how to help kids strive and reach their full potential." Students benefit from the supplemental programs and services offered, such as independent study courses, career counseling, job placement, apprenticeships, and concurrent enrollment in community college.
