Independent Study Program, 2021-2022


Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):            

For the 2021-2022 school year, each school district in California is required to offer an independent study option to students and families to be made available to students whose health would be put at risk by in-person instruction, as determined by the parent or guardian.  State and federal laws require us to inform you of your option to enroll your student in an Independent Study program instead of in-person instruction.

Please click HERE to see the attached parent notification letter for additional information about GUSD’s Independent Study Program for the 2021-2022 school year.

Assistant Superintendent, Instructional Services
