Short Term Independent Study
A Short Term Independent Study Agreement is an optional alternative instructional strategy by which students may reach curriculum objectives and fulfill promotional requirements. An Independent Study Agreement is a means of individualizing the educational plan for students who are going to be out of school for five (5) or more consecutive days not to exceed fourteen (14) for reasons other than illness or injury. Independent Study Contracts must meet strict California State guidelines in order to result in excused absences. Please note that students are highly discouraged from missing school for reasons other than illness; however, it is acknowledged that family emergencies or special events sometimes necessitate travel out of the area.
