Independent Study 21-22

 

The TK-6 Model

 Our TK-6 students enrolled in Independent Study will work online with a teacher, either in a class that also has in-person students OR in a class taught by one of our amazing substitute teachers. Each substitute teacher will have one grade span, so TK-K, 1-2, 3-4, or 5-6, and they will be able to work closely with those students, teaching both grades independently of the other and providing the great teaching we've come to expect in Oakdale. In classrooms containing both in-person and online students, our Independent Study students will be an online part of the class and able to participate in what they are doing in class. We are assigning students to their teachers based on home school site whenever we can, and when we can't, they will be placed with one of our substitute teachers. 

 The assigned teacher will contact you as soon as possible. Please note that you may request a student-parent-teacher conference meeting at any time.

 Your student may attend an Independent Study class at a site that is not your home school. For example, if my home site is Magnolia but the 3rd grade Independent Study class is being taught at Sierra View, my child would attend Sierra View and be a part of the class there. They will still get the great education that teachers at all sites provide and have access to the teacher and curriculum.  If your student does need to attend the Independent Study class at a school site other than your home school, please note that though we'll make every effort to place them at their home site, we cannot guarantee a place for them should you decide to have them return to in-person classes. They will absolutely have a spot at an elementary school in the district, but we cannot hold a spot for them at their home site. 

 Please read the registration form and the Amendment of Contract very carefully. They outline the requirements and expectations for Independent Study in detail. This includes information on the synchronous teaching time required. TK-3 students are required to have daily contact with a teacher and daily synchronous teaching. 4-6 grade students are required to have at least an hour a week of synchronous instruction, plus a daily check in with school personnel. The virtual classrooms allow our students and our teachers to meet these mandates.

 If you would like your child to be enrolled in the Independent Study program, please fill out the registration form below. The teacher will contact you in the next two days. Independent Study is just one option, so if you would prefer that your student not be enrolled in Independent Study at this time, we are happy to welcome them to in-person school anytime. If you do enroll your child in Independent Study, you may unenroll and return to in-person school at any time. You may also re-enroll if you so desire by contacting us at isp-2122@ojusd.org.

If you have questions about Independent Study, you can reach out to your Independent Study teacher, then site administration, then to us at isp-2122@ojusd.org.

 

The 7-8 Model

 Students enrolled in Independent Study at grades 7 and 8 will take classes through the Edgenuity online program. They will be enrolled in classes that reasonably  match what they would take in in-person school. They will be assigned a teacher from OJUSD to help guide them in their work and make sure they are progressing. This teacher will do one hour of weekly synchronous teaching and will also do a daily check-in with their Independent Study students either by phone or by Google Meet in order to make sure all is going well and get any questions answered. The weekly synchronous teaching and the daily check-in are not optional, so students must be available for both of these. 

 The assigned teacher will contact you as soon as possible. Please note that you may request a student-parent-teacher conference meeting at any time.

 Please read the registration form and the Amendment of Contract very carefully. They outline the requirements and expectations for Independent Study in detail. This includes information on the synchronous teaching time and the daily check-in required as explained above.
