The Ankeny Community School District is proud to announce that Jeremy Braden will assume responsibility as the new principal for the Alternative Learning Center (ALC) for the 2018-2019 school year.  The Ankeny Community School District, has been undergoing a study through a taskforce of the alternative learning opportunities in Ankeny Schools.  The district is committed to ensuring that all students graduate.  Therefore, creating a program with resources to assist students that may otherwise be at risk of dropping out is a priority of Dr. Bruce A.
