Independent Study

  • The district defines an Independent Study as an inquiry-driven, learning experience that a student pursues under the supervision of a certificated staff member or otherwise professionally qualified individual in a topic of interest that is substantially different than and/or not offered in the program of studies in the district or through a college option. The Independent Study, therefore, differs from the Senior Option because an Independent Study is a course or course equivalent that requires a grade given by the advisor that is considered equivalent to other graded courses offered in the district. In other words, these differing requirements make an Independent Study both grade and credit-bearing in contrast to the Senior Option, which is credit but not grade bearing.
