Independent Study Program 2021-22
California Assembly Bill 130 authorizes districts to provide Independent Study for a student whose health would be put at risk by in-person instruction, as determined by the parent or guardian. The program SCSD is offering in 2021-22 will differ significantly from the Connections program we offered last year in that synchronous instruction will be limited, as the legislation requires just 30 minutes daily for grades K-3 and 40 minutes, 2 times per week for 4-8 grade.
Here is a presentation slide deck from the August 5, 2021 SCSD School Board Meeting with more detailed information. If you are interested in this program or would like to inquire more about it, please contact your school Principal.
