    Extended Absence:

    Independent Study Contracts: If a child will be out of school for five or more days for an unexcused reason (e.g., personal necessity), parents may contact the school at least five days in advance about arranging Independent Study. While schools accommodate most requests, certain criteria may lead to the school denying the request, including: less than five days advance notice, lack of academic proficiency, attendance or behavioral concerns, vacation, conflict with testing or lack of resources required to provide the service. Independent Study days are not considered absences, as long as the contract is abided by and all work is completed
