BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The Bentonville School District has decided to offer an alternative learning environment at the elementary level for the first time starting this fall.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1JPBbj6 ) reports the ACE Academy, which stands for Academic and Character Excellence, is designed to give more attention to students who need additional support due to academic, social, emotional or behavioral issues. The academy will be housed at Sugar Creek Elementary School.

Sugar Creek Principal Matt Cook said assignments to the academy will be temporary. He said teachers and principals will recommend students for the academy to the academy’s director.

An alternative learning environment called Gateway has been available to the district’s high school students for several years.
