INDEPENDENT STUDY FOR EXTENDED ABSENCE

 

The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District Board of Education recognizes that circumstances occur which necessitate prolonged student absences from school. In such instances the parents may apply for an independent study arrangement, developed in accordance with legal requirements as provided for in the Education Code. This arrangement shall serve as a temporary alternative to regular classroom instruction.

Independent Study refers to a formal independent learning arrangement in which a written agreement exists between a student, the student's parent/guardian, the teacher(s), and the designated supervisor. All instruction using independent study as a modality shall be consistent with the district's prescribed curriculum and shall be designed to meet the needs of the participating student.
