Independent Study Program

The Natomas Unified School District Board of Trustees authorizes Independent Study as an optional alternative instructional strategy for eligible students, whose needs may be best met through study outside of the regular classroom setting.

Parents/Guardians of students who are interested in independent study shall need to complete the Independent Studies Request Form. The Natomas High School Administration will contact Parents/Guardians regarding their request and schedule appointments with students who qualify for the Independent Studies program.

The NHS Administration shall approve independent study for an individual student only upon determining that the student is prepared to meet the district’s requirements for independent study and is likely to succeed in independent study as well as or better than he/she would in the regular classroom.

Independent Studies in NOT a credit recovery program.

Who is eligible for Independent Studies?
