School VISION:  Keeping our Wakanyaja (children) sacred through positive thinking.

E.A.G.L.E. Center I, II, and III

Mission Statement:

To empower all learners to succeed using customized learning, nurturing cultural, academic, and personal growth, and supporting students’ natural motivation to learn, resulting in a stronger sense of well-being.


The E.A.G.L.E. Center (EC), as part of the Cheyenne-Eagle Butte (C-EB) School, acknowledges that some students experience academic, behavioral, emotional, and life challenges which put them at risk. The purpose of the EC is to assist these students by implementing a credit recovery and intervention program that provides a multi-dimensional approach to learning. This educational approach (E.A.G.L.E. acronym) involves Education, Assessment, Goal Setting, Life Skills, and Employment. At any given time, the EC I program can accommodate ten students and the EC II/III programs can accommodate fifty students (forty pandemic year), for a grand total of sixty students (fifty pandemic year). ECI/ECII/ ECIII emergency placements will be considered.

Program Descriptions

E.A.G.L.E. Center I:

The EC Program is for at-risk students ranging from 13-16 years of age in grades 7- 8 who have had significant academic difficulties within the regular school program. This program serves a maximum of ten students. Administrative discretion may be used.

E.A.G.L.E. Center II:

The EC Program is for at-risk high school students (grades 9-12) who are experiencing specific school or life challenges. To be eligible, students may be 5th year seniors, young parents, or lack credits to graduate (not an all-inclusive list). The C-EB High School principal or designee may place up to fifty (forty pandemic year) students in the EC II program per semester, but that total of fifty students (forty pandemic year) includes all EC students from the previous semester who have maintained good standing by earning credits towards graduation requirements and maintaining positive attendance. All enrolled EC students in good standing have priority, and the EC principal reserves the right both to recommend continuation of any student in the EC program and to accept emergency placements above the maximum of fifty (forty pandemic year) not to exceed a grand total (EC I/EC II/ EC III) of sixty (fifty pandemic year).

E.A.G.L.E. Center III:

This is an Interim Alternative Educational Schedule/Setting (IAES), and the student will be able to progress in the general curriculum with a schedule and accommodations unique to the student. An IAES may be used if a student’s transition placement is pending (per Individual Accommodation Plan, Individualized Education Program/Plan, or Section 504 Accommodation Plan, and per Behavior Policy) or as determined by the EC Principal. Students must attend school daily from 8:15-3:15 (pandemic year 8:00-3:00). Any deviation from daily required program attendance must be approved by EC Principal and requires supportive documentation. Documentation to support a schedule change may include parent status or documented medical recommendation (not an all-inclusive list), or behavior.
