Recent legislation requires districts to inform families of their right to enroll their child in either an in-person instructional program in their local district school or an Independent Study program for the 2021/22 school year.
Cypress School District will be partnering with the Orange County Department of Education to provide an optional Independent Study program for families who are interested in an alternative education option for the 2021/22 school year.
The Independent Study program will provide:
• Daily synchronous instruction for students in transitional kindergarten through third grade
• Daily live interaction and weekly synchronous instruction for students in grades four through six
All mandated state assessments and school-assigned assessments are a required part of the program. Social and academic support staff will be available as needed.
Parents choosing the Independent Study program have the right to request a pupil-parent-educator conference meeting before enrollment to review the enrollment process, academic program delivery, specific academic expectations, student support, as well as the withdrawal process.
Failure to meet the requirements of the Independent Study program will result in the student’s reassignment to in-person instruction in the Cypress School District. If a seat is not available at the student’s home school, he/she will be administratively transferred to another school within the district.
To request enrollment in the Independent Study program, please complete this form
. A district staff member will contact you within one to three business days with enrollment information.
