Independent Study

August 4, 2021
Re: 2021-2022 School Year Independent Study
Dear Parents/Guardians:
The Palo Verde Unified School District is preparing for the start of school this Fall. Our first day of school is Monday, August 9, 2021. We are planning to return to a normal school schedule for all schools in our District. Please check with child’s school for a complete schedule.
The state has adopted legislation (AB 130) that requires all public school districts in California to offer “Independent Study” for any student whose health would be put at risk by in-person instruction, as determined by the parent or guardian of the student. This is NOT the remote learning as you have become accustomed to during the COVID-19 Pandemic. PVUSD will offer short-term independent study for students whose absences range from three (3) to fourteen (14) days. After fourteen (14) days, long-term independent study applies.
As we prepare for the new school year, we would appreciate you letting us know if you would like your child to participate in the State mandated long-term “Independent Study” program. Please fill out and return the “Independent Study Request” form to your school site if you are interested in having your child participate. In addition, if you would like to schedule a student- parent-educator conference prior to enrolling in Independent Study, please contact the school your child will be attending this Fall.
Thank you,
 
Ms. Tracie Kern
Superintendent
