The Ascent program of the CEDU Family of Services in North Idaho confirmed a June enrollment of a student whose parents found CEDU on the Woodbury Reports Homepage on the World Wide Web. The parent was very appreciative of the information he found on the Woodbury Reports Homepage, and when he followed the link to the CEDU Homepage, decided he found the right place for his child. 

 A Chat Room went on-line last week (July 1st) as part of the Woodbury Reports Homepage on the Internet’s World Wide Web (http://www.woodbury.com). This is in response to parents who have e-mailed the suggestion there be a place on the Homepage for parents to discuss schools and programs with each other as well as with consultants and school staff. 

The Chat Room is titled “Coffee and Donuts” and all are welcome. To get things started, Lon is asking each of you to stop by and leave a message. 

Teen Challenge in Shreveport Louisiana, 318-425-8336, announced they now have a Homepage on the Internet’s World Wide Web. Their web address is http://www.prysm.net/~teen_ch, and they claim to be the only Teen Challenge facility to have a Homepage. 

NorthStar Center in Bend, Oregon 503-385-8657, has formed a Parent Advisory Board to take on the task of improving communications between the program and the parents of students. One result is when a new student enrolls, a parent living near their geographic area will contact the new family. NorthStar’s tutor, Sue Isaacson, has arranged a situation where students who need a High School Diploma may now do their work with NorthStar and still receive their diploma from Central Oregon Community College (COCC). They are also negotiating the possibility for students receiving college credit from COCC for the student’s participation at NorthStar. 

Allen Cardoza, President of West Shield Adolescent Services, announced their expansion into the Northern Idaho/Spokane, Washington region. They will have an experienced, trained agent living in that area to provide faster response transport services to parents in that area. They have already established on location staff in Northern California, and Minneapolis, and soon will be established in Nashville and New York. For information about West Shield’s services for adolescents and their families, please call 800- 899-8585.
