Information Regarding COVID-Related ISC's
Posted 2/11/22

In January of 2021, the State of California passed a law that schools must provide an Independent Study Contract (ISC) to students who miss school for COVID-related reasons. The goal is student-centered to ensure that students stay connected to their learning.

Most parents/guardians are familiar with vacation-related ISCs, but these are not the same as COVID-related ISCs. The big difference between a vacation-related ISC and a COVID-related ISC is who initiates the contract. Vacation-related ISC’s are initiated by the parent/guardian and COVID-related ISC’s are initiated by the school.  For more information, please click here to see more information.
