Independent Study Virtual School Program 2021-2022

  • Assembly Bill 130 - Independent Study Option for 2021-2022 School Year

    In partnership with Stride, the Cambrian School District is providing an alternative Independent Study Virtual School Program option to students whose health would be put at risk by in-person instruction, as determined by the parent(s)/guardian(s), or other basis authorized by Education Code section 51745.

    The Independent Study Virtual School Program (ISVSP) is voluntary. The ISVSP is an alternative program that provides students instruction using the same content standards and holds students to the same requirements as the classroom program.  By opting for the ISVSP, the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) have the responsibility to support the instruction of their student(s) in the home environment with professional guidance from certificated teacher(s) from Stride. 

    Parents/guardians, students, supervising teacher(s) or certificated designee, and any other persons who may be included in delivering service to the student must sign a Learning Agreement before the independent study can begin.

  • INDEPENDENT STUDY VIRTUAL SCHOOL PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
    • ISVSP is a long-term Independent Study Program (at least 15 school days or more).
    • ISVSP requires a commitment from parents/guardians, as your child's Learning Coach (about 3-5 hours per day), to support and monitor your child's learning, engagement, and daily attendance.  This will require parents/guardians to dedicate time to learn how to navigate the Stride Learning platform and how to reach out to Stride for both technical and learning support as needed.  If your student struggles with attendance, engagement, and work completion, the district will begin the process of the re-engagement back to in-person instruction as quickly as possible.
    • Because this is a substantial supplemental cost to the district, your child's daily attendance, engagement in synchronous and asynchronous instruction, and work completion of all courses are requirements to maintain your child's enrollment in this program in order for the district to recover the Average Daily Attendance (ADA). 
    • ISVSP is NOT and should NOT be used for travel purposes.  Violation of this policy will also result in your child's dis-enrollment from ISVSP immediately.
  • REQUIRED REGULAR CHECK-INS WITH DISTRICT SUPERVISING TEACHERS!

    In addition to your child’s Stride virtual teacher, your child will have a Cambrian supervising teacher who will conduct regularly scheduled check-ins.
