INDEPENDENT STUDY PROCEDURES
INDEPENDENT STUDY CONTRACTS
Students who will be away from school for a minimum of 5 days up to a maximum of 10 days, may be able to receive class work and remain up-to-date. To request an ISC, please notify the school 3 weeks prior OR AT LEAST TEN SCHOOL DAYS PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF ABSENCE so that the request can be reviewed, and if approved Parent or Guardian must come to the office to sign the contract. Class assignments will be organized and given to the student the day prior to the first absence. This process helps students to keep up with school work, but there is no substitute for teacher instruction and class interaction.
Please note: Independent Study is not available during the first five days OR the last five days of a semester. ISC may also be denied within 5 days of grading period, during CAASP testing, during finals as well due to low grades and/or poor attendance. Please schedule vacations appropriately.
For the 2019-2020 school year, Independent Study will not be offered on the following dates:
Quarter 1 – August 20th to August 30th & Oct. 7th to 11th
Quarter 2 – December 13th – 19th
Quarter 3 – January 6th through January 17th & March 9th – 13th
Quarter 4 – May 22nd – June 4th
Completed work is due on the due date specified on the Independent Study Agreement, no exceptions. If a student is ill one the due date, arrangements should be made to have parent/guardian bring the work to the office or remit assignments by fax or email. State attendance auditors closely audit Independent study contracts, and all steps must be followed completely.
Request forms for Independent Study can be found in the attendance locker to the left.
