Hello Golden Eagle! A short-term Independent study contract is intended for absences greater than 3 days and no more than 21 days in a school year. A completed contract will change absent days to contract days when all paperwork is completed. Please follow the guidelines below!
Fill out the google form to request a Short-Term Independent Study Contract. This starts the process for you.
Someone from the district office will reach out to your parent/guardian to confirm request and explain the process.
Immediately reach out to your teachers in person or via email to get any assignments you need to complete during your absence. Be clear about the time and days you will be missing. Work on assigned work as much as possible while you are out. Most teachers will allow a period of time once you return, to complete the work.
When you return to campus, please stop by the attendance office sometime during your first day back to pick up your contract packet. In your packet you will find:
As soon as you have turned in your contract and all six of your teachers have turned in a work verification form, with your corresponding sample schoolwork, your absent days can be changed to contract days in our system for attendance. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help during absence.
If you have questions about this process or problems during your short-term independent study contract experience, please contact:
