Independent Study

Independent Study Request Form

We encourage families to schedule trips during school breaks so students will not miss important lessons and shared experiences with their class during their absence. When a student must miss school because of family obligations or illness, the teacher can provide assignments to guide learning while the student is absent from class. This agreement assumes that the student is engaged in an educational activity for each school day absent. Please be aware that it is impossible for the teacher to provide the same experience that your child would have had at school. We do not provide independent study for more than 5 days in a row. A student is eligible for up to 14 independent study days for the school year. Please note, not all Independent Study requests will be granted approval.

Independent Study Process

  1. Request an Independent Study (IS) 1 day before, or up to 8:20 am, the requested day of IS via the IS request form. (Verbal Requests will not be accepted)
  2. The office will prepare the Independent Study Agreement Form and send it to the teacher and IS administrator to prepare the assignment and approve the request. This form must be signed by a parent/guardian and the student prior to the commencement of the IS.
  3. When your child returns to school give the completed Independent Study work to your teacher. The work must be received within five (5) days of the last day of independent study.
  4. An Engagement Log will be sent to the parents once the work has been completed to verify student engagement during the absence(s).
