Short Term Independent Study (STIS)
If a student knows they are going to be absent for 5-10 school days (weekend and holidays do not count as days missed), they can go on STIS by turning in a note to Jessica Gray in the attendance office no later than 5 school days before the absences. The note needs to include the dates the student will be absent, the reason, and that they are requesting STIS. Kris Dickey, our STIS coordinator, will work with the student and their teachers to collect the work for days to be missed. If the student completes 100% of the work and turns it into Ms. Dickey upon return, all of their absences will be cleared as Independent Study and the submitted work take the place of classwork. This is a great program to take advantage of for 5 to 10 days of absences. Please note, Independent study is not available during the last two weeks of school.
Home and Hospital (H & H)
If a student is going to miss a couple of months of school for medical reasons, they can be put on H & H by turning in a Doctor’s note that specifically states the medical condition and the dates needing H & H schooling. Once a Doctor’s Note is turned into Jessica Gray, the attendance clerk, the family will be contacted by Dawn Horwath, our H & H teacher, who will be collecting and delivering work to the student at their home. This is a wonderful program to keep students caught up with their academics while their medical needs are being met. If the student’s medical condition persists beyond a couple of months, they can be referred to the District’s long-term Medical Independent Study program.
