Independent study is an alternative education program which offers the flexibility to meet individual student needs, interests, and styles of learning. Independent study is not an alternative curriculum and independent study students are expected to meet the same educational objectives as all other students. The district's Core Curriculum is aligned to grade level standards and state content standards.
If you have decided you would like to enroll your child in Vallecito Independent Study, you can begin the enrollment process by completing the Independent Study Request form below and returning the form to the principal at your home school. Following that contact, the principal may set up a parent conference if you have not already met to go over the program and sign the request form. The request form will then be sent to the district office and on to the Independent Study teacher. The Independent Study Teacher will contact you to go over the program, complete an independent study master agreement, introduce you to the curriculum and materials, and loan you a technology device, if needed.
To learn more about the process, please contact Cheryl at the District Office at 209-795-8503.
