The Center for Alternative Instructional Resources (CAIR) is located in the heart of downtown Grandview, right at 10th and Main Street. The school serves to support the secondary and elementary schools of the Grandview C-4 School District.
The campus and administrative center houses several alternative programs. They include Transitions (K – 12th grade), Crossroads Program (4th-12th grade), Missouri Options Program and the District Focus program.
Students in the Transitions program are referred through their sending schools. The Missouri Options Program (MOP) serves students who are at least 17 years old, are behind in their cohorts at least one year in credits and Crossroads is a short term and long term alternative to suspension program.
CAIR serves more than 100 students. On average its student demographics are 43% African-American, 44% Caucasian, .07% Hispanic, .06% Asian, Indian or other minority backgrounds.
The staff at CAIR strive to provide a safe, supportive environment that empowers students and addresses them as individuals, so they can develop the skills and confidence necessary to graduate, become productive citizens, and life-long learners.
