Independent Study

Fun facts about Independent Study


~ Independent Study (IS) requests need to be filled out in the office by a parent at least two weeks before the student will be absent. 


~ Independent Study requests are not automatically approved – the Principal reserves the right to deny a request.


~ The maximum number of days permitted for a single Independent Study request is 20 school days.  


~ If the student’s assignments are not completed and turned in on the first day the student returns to campus after an IS, the absences will be marked as Unexcused.


~ It is at the teacher’s discretion if the work that the student turns in meets the requirements as set forth in the Independent Study contract.
