One southern Colorado school district is starting a new program to help high school dropouts earn their diploma.
Harrison School District Two in Colorado Springs has started a program called E-3- that stands for engage, educate and employ.
The program is for recent high school drop outs.
Students participating in the program earn credits toward graduation through classes online and in the classroom.
Students also gain skills in the construction industry by working with professionals to build a house from the ground up. The program is two years long.
24 students are currently in the program, which started April 1.
Another 25 are expected to start later this month, and as many as 50 could start in the fall.
