Classic Program: Specialized Program for Independent Study

CLASSIC MODEL:

The Classic Model is a program designed for parents and students that may need to access a traditional academic program away from the school campus.

According to California Education Code (EC) Section 51747, independent study requirements mandate that local education agencies (Las Flores) adopt and implement written policies which include guidelines for independent study attendance in California.  Independent study instruction must result in education that is “equal in quality and quantity to classroom instruction.” At Las Flores, we offer a high quality educational option for students in grades TK – 12. For families that have the desire to teach their children at home or your child or family has needs that require a different schedule, our independent study academy may be for you!

Grades TK-8: It is important to note that in this program, parents are the primary teacher five days a week utilizing District adopted textbooks and/or supplemental online curricula.  Students and parents meet at least one a week with a credentialed teacher to review work and set goals.  Students receive daily synchronous instruction and may also participate in enrichment learning experiences on Fridays.   Our fully accredited school provides parents with a written agreement that outlines engagement and activity expectations and it is the parents/guardian's responsibility to make sure that the terms of the agreement are met throughout enrollment in the program. 

Grades 9-12: Students learn at home five days a week through online courses in science, social science, math, electives-including world language, and English that meet a-g requirements for UC/CSU admission.  Synchronous learning opportunities occur every Friday.  Physical Education requirements are completed independently.  Assignments are submitted Fridays by 2:00 PM.  All tests take place at Las Flores Educational Center.
