Overview Of The Independent Study Program

  • In addition to in-person instruction, the District will offer an Independent Study Program (ISP) as an alternative to in-person instruction for students whose health may be put at risk by attending class face-to-face. ISP is an educational program that will provide instruction based on the state-adopted content standards by certificated teachers.

    TK-6 Grade Students
    TK-6 students will receive 60-plus minutes of daily synchronous instruction from a certificated teacher and live academic and social/emotional support from the teacher and other support staff.

    7-12 Grade Students
    7-12 students will be enrolled in Apex, the District’s online curriculum, and receive weekly synchronous instruction and live academic and social/emotional support from a certificated teacher and support staff.

    The Learning Agreement
    The conditions and expectations of ISP will be outlined in the student’s written Learning Agreement, which must be reviewed and signed prior to enrollment. Please click here to submit any additional questions you may have! All questions will be answered through our FAQ section on this page.
