Contracts for Independent Study (CIS)
If you are planning a family trip during the school year for which your student will miss 5 to 20 days, it is the parent/guardian/student’s responsibility to request a CIS from the Attendance Office. This must be done two weeks prior to the student’s leaving date. Work must be satisfactorily returned and signed off before the absence is marked “excused”. Regular attendance is a direct factor in strong student achievement. When your student is absent more than three days you should also call your students counselor to request homework. A 48 hour turn around is needed to gather work. Please remember to pick up the work!
