A Contract for Independent Study may be requested from the office a minimum of one week in advance of the student’s absence. The parent completes the agreement and assignment form. The day before the absence, the pink copies, along with the assignments, will be sent home with the students. The student should complete the work during the absence. The first day the student returns to school, completed assignments should be turned in to the classroom teacher. The student will be given credit as an excused absence upon completion of the contract. A student with an Independent Contract will NOT receive credit for perfect attendance.
