BOHS Independent Study

For the 2020-21 School Year:
BOUSD is offering Independent Study for grades 7 - 12 students as an alternative option to distance learning. Students will commit to this program for at least one (1) semester and will not return to BOHS for the hybrid model when safe to do so. If students want to return to BOHS in a hybrid of full in-person model, they may do so at the semester in January 2021.

BOHS Independent Study Program

Eligibility for the Independent Study program will require a Team Guidance meeting from the student's home school that should include the following persons: site administrator, school counselor, parent(s)/guardian(s) and student. Once a student is approved and enrolled in the Independent Study program they are expected to work between 30-40 hours per week independently and to complete their assignments as scheduled.  Additionally, the IS student is expected to attend a prescribed weekly appointment (scheduled Monday – Friday), to turn in their work, take competency tests and receive their assignments for the next week.  Failure to complete any of the above requirements will place the student in jeopardy of being transferred out of the Independent Study program and back to the comprehensive campus program.  For any questions on procedures for eligibility please contact your student's school counselor.
