Short Term Independent Study

Short-Term Independent Study
Students absent between 3-14 consecutive days are eligible for short-term independent study.   Please note:  Independent Studies can only be done for a total of 14 days in one school year.  
Please request an independent student no less than 2 weeks before leaving.  Teachers need time to prepare homework, explain the assignment to the student, and work with the attendance clerk on the Independent Studies contract. 
You must email both your student's teacher and Mrs. Amy Soto regarding obtaining an Independent Study Packet and Contract.   Please note, contracts will be sent 1-3 days prior to your student being absent, contracts can not be sent any earlier or they will be VOID.
For additional questions:
