Independent Contracts for Study
· Independent Contracts for Study:
It is extremely important that students have regular attendance until the end of the school year. Parents should be aware that five or more absences in a grading period might have a significant effect on a student’s academic progress. Therefore, students who will miss five or more consecutive days for reasons other than illness are encouraged to complete an Independent Contract for Study in lieu of attending school.
To be eligible for independent study, parents must contact the school secretary at least 5 days prior to the planned absence outlining dates and reasons for the request. All work must be submitted on the day the student returns to receive credit for those days missed.
If an emergency should arise and different accommodations are needed, please contact the school office as soon as possible. If possible, every effort will be made to accommodate the situation.
