White Tanks Learning Center (WTLC) is a Separate Public Day School housed within the Litchfield Elementary School District. WTLC has two types of programs available for students who require a more structured, supervised environment which provides support for their behavior and emotional needs.
White Tanks Learning Center utilizes Conscious Discipline and Strong Kids Curriculum to create a safe and connect school family environment. Conscious Discipline is an integral part of the school day from the time students get on the bus in the morning until they return home in the afternoon. Our program focuses on teaching students how to accept and manage strong emotions, how to self-regulate, how to solve conflicts with others, how to follow rules and routines and how to be a contributing member to our school family. The skills they learn will provide success in peer relationships, family systems, the community and the work force.
Our goal is to provide each student with a quality education in a safe environment that promotes learning and the effective use of social skills. The goal for every student at White Tanks Learning Center is to increase the student's academic level to the point that he/she will be successful in a public school setting, eliminate inappropriate behaviors and replace them with behaviors that are acceptable in a classroom environment and return the student to their home school as quickly as possible.
Self-Contained Special Education Program
The self-contained special education program at White Tanks Learning Center is for students whose emotional and behavioral needs require more intensive special education services outside of the regular education public school environment.
Alternative Education Program
Parents and Administrators need options and choices when students violate school rules/procedures. Instead of suspending students to home, it is educationally sound to provide a highly structured learning environment. Litchfield Elementary School District has created this environment in the Alternative Education Program at White Tanks Learning Center.
