    When Licton Springs K-8 began as Alternative School #1 more than 45 years ago, it was founded by people who also understood that each child was endowed with unique gifts, and that the only way to nurture these gifts was for education to be connected to a community of caring and involved parents, family members, friends and volunteers.  We could not be the school we are today without the commitment of our families and volunteers who help out in the classroom, share their knowledge and experience with the students, chaperone, field trips, plan events, raise money, advocate for alternative education with the school district, interview teachers and staff, provide leadership and participate in governing the school, and support our students in more ways than we can count.

    To All Volunteers and Chaperones:

    Volunteer Badges are now available in the office.

    If you believe you have turned in all the necessary forms and completed the online ASM training, stop by the office with your I.D.

    • If your paperwork and training is complete, we will check your ID and you will be given the official (pink) Volunteer Badge.
