Students All Learning Together (SALT) program provides optional educational opportunity for students who are credit deficient due to attendance problems. The program provides both an academic and community service/work component. Whether it’s collecting coats for an annual coat drive or making blankets for veterans, learning to give back is a big part of the SALT program.
SALT offers several community service opportunities for students, but we are open to students coming up with their own ideas. Students receive credit once they have turned in 170 hours of verified work.
The SALT program is located in two locations, one for Kankakee County and one for Iroquois County. For more information about the SALT program contact the program director: Michelle Hessler, for Kankakee County, at (815) 935-7282 or Lori Johnson, for Iroquois County, (815) 429-3160.
