7530 – Independent Study

The Grand Island Board of Education encourages the establishment of indepen­dent study programs in the district schools when appropriate.

Independent study programs provide alternative educational experiences tailored to meet academic needs of students.  Independent study may vary in length of time from study projects of several weeks within a given course to courses for semester or year long duration.  These experiences will be made available or practical in regular classroom study.  Although guidance procedures and assessment will be under the leadership of the school's certified staff, independent study may provide community-based   experiences with people in other professions, business, government, or industry.  The range of opportunities for independent study and eligibility will be established by the school's certified staff and thoroughly discussed with students to insure their awareness of such opportunities.
