PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE 
 
Welcome to the Owatonna ALC! My name is Melodee Hoffner and I am the new Assistant Principal at Owatonna Alternative Learning Center (ALC). I am very excited and thrilled at the opportunity to be part of this community.  My background consists of working as a K-12 school counselor, mental health, drug and alcohol counselor, and health promotion specialist.  I have additional training in Positive Behavior Instructional Supports (PBIS), Response to Intervention (RtI), AVID (Advanced via Individual Determination) and many other educational related experiences.  I am looking forward to working with you as a partner in education to ensure your student’s success.

 The entire Owatonna Alternative Learning Center staff are committed to building relationships, facilitating student community service, creating an environment based on respect and trust and focusing on student growth.  We strongly feel that all students have value and can succeed. 
 
We look forward to partnering with the community, parents and students for the upcoming school  year.
 
Sincerely,
Melodee Hoffner
