PROCEDURES FOR ENROLLING, DISENROLLING, AND REENROLLING IN ISP

To enroll in ISP for the 2022-23 school year, a contract must be in place for each student. This contract must be signed by the student's parent/legal guardian. You may start your registration on our FMSD Registration Form. For students with exceptional needs, the student's individualized education program (IEP) team, at their current school site, must approve for Independent Study before the student can begin participating. 


If your student is enrolled in ISP, and you wish to have your student return to in-person instruction during the school year, you may provide notice to the Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Sarah Feldman [email protected] / 408-283-6043, and your student will be returned to in-person instruction no later than five instructional days after receiving the notice. Please note, students will be placed on availability, students are not guaranteed a spot at their home school.

 

Students may re-enroll in ISP at any time during the 2022-23 school year, if there is space available.

ISP INSTRUCTIONAL TIME

The goal of our Independent Study Program is to provide an alternative to in-person instruction. As such, Independent Study is an educational program that provides instruction based on the state-adopted content standards by certificated teachers. There are specific requirements for instructional time that include both synchronous and asynchronous work. These expectations will also be outlined in the students’ written Learning Contract, which must be signed prior to enrollment.
