Independent Study at Walnutwood
Traditional Independent Study
For students that wish to engage in a traditional independent study that includes meeting with an assigned academic adviser (teacher) a minimum of once each week, Walnutwood provides a traditional Independent Study program. In addition to the weekly meeting with their teacher students will attend subject specific enrichment seminars.(* cancelled due to Distance Learning )
Students participate in both on-line and traditional independent study courses. This category includes full time Virtual Students who may find certain classes where direct face-to-face interaction with a teacher proves valuable. Our traditional independent study students are also eligible to participate in our on-line learning program.
- Online students will use APEX ,an online district approved curriculum and meet with their teacher in-person once a week on the same day/time every week for 45 minutes. At the end of each appointment, student is given a full week of work to complete by the following appointment.
- Pure online students will also use APEX but use a district approved platform like Zoom to meet with their teacher for 45 minutes on the same day/time once a week. No in-person teacher contact with this option. At the end of each appointment, student is given a full week of work to complete by the following appointment.
- Our curriculum is divided into weeks as opposed to semesters. For example, English 1 A is 8-weeks and English 1 B is 8-weeks. There are 16-weeks in a semester. Competency of academic standards and weekly progress is different for every student so students may need more or less time to complete a subject.
