    Synopsis of Curriculum

    Independent Study is offered to provide individual students with the opportunity to explore special talents or interests.  Students will work with a classroom teacher to set personal learning goals and to determine the type of project or learning experience they would like to pursue.  The classroom teacher and student will agree upon and determine the credit value (.5, 1.0) and how a grade will be determined (percentage grade or Pass/Fail). Independent study is designed to supplement a student’s educational pathway but cannot exempt a student from Board approved core graduation requirements.  Students must complete Independent Study paperwork and be approved for the course by a building administrator.
