Independent Study Program

The Moreland School District offers two Independent Study Programs for families who seek an alternative educational experience for their child. Both programs rely on a strong collaboration between our ISP teachers, parents, and students.

 

Site-Based ISP Program Description

The Moreland Site-Based Independent Study Program serves students who are in kindergarten through 8th grade and reside within the Moreland attendance area, as well as neighboring school districts. In this program, parents are responsible for the day-to-day teaching of lessons with support and guidance from ISP teachers. A standards-based curriculum is made available to enrolled families, along with other supplementary materials such as math manipulatives and science supplies. 

 

ISP families are required to attend regularly scheduled conference appointments, where students submit self-selected work samples in each of the major curricular areas: language arts, math, social studies, and science.  Conferences are also used to encourage students and advise parents in their homeschooling endeavors.

 

This program also offers on-site enrichment classes in the areas of science/STEM, art, and writing, as well as field trip opportunities and other social events.

 

All students need to be enrolled in the Moreland School District prior to enrollment in ISP.  After district enrollment, the ISP application form needs to be completed.  Parents will be contacted by the ISP teachers to set up a conference to discuss program expectations and sign a written agreement.

 

Virtual Independent Study Program Description

The Moreland Virtual Independent Study Program is a self-paced, standards-based program through Edmentum.  Students attend a daily Zoom class for attendance, community building, and social emotional learning.  For content work, students have the flexibility to choose a lesson format, including live Zooms, pre-recorded lessons, and print study guides, and work at their own pace through the independent work.  ISP teachers work with students and parents to ensure progress is being made, provide feedback on learning, and set individual work goals.
