High school for recovering addicts may close
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Administrators of Wisconsin's only high school focused on helping students recover from drug and alcohol addiction say financial difficulties may force them to close it.
Horizon High School opened in 2005 in Madison to educate students who are at least 30 days sober. Fifteen students are enrolled this year.
School board president Michael Christopher tells the State Journal (http://bit.ly/1Tzkloj ) the private nonprofit school will face a deficit of $10,500 each month in the coming school year if it continues to offer therapeutic services.
Horizon director Traci Tisserand Goll says the facility doesn't have typical school hours. Staff members are in communication with their students on weekends and holidays.
The school is supported by other school districts, including Madison. But, administrators say that support has waned.
