Short Term Independent Study Program

We want to make families aware of the Short Term Independent Study Program available at your school site when a five day or more absence from school is unavoidable.  Of course, students benefit most from directly participating in classroom instruction and absences should be avoided, however in rare instances, an extended absence period from school may be required.  If parents have a planned absence of 5 or more consecutive days, they may request an Short Term Independent Study Contract from the school Attendance Clerk at least 3 full school days prior to the absence to allow teachers and office staff time to prepare the student contract.  Students return all completed assignments on the due date designated on the Short Term Independent Study Contract. For further information about the Short Term Independent Study Program, please contact your school Attendance Clerk.
