Independent Study

Teachers and students may work together to develop an Independent Study course that meets the needs of both.

Students must have an approved independent study contract, available from the guidance office, before enrolling in an independent study class. Students must have at least a 2.50 GPA and must be registered for at least 5 other daily classes. The teacher supervising the independent study must be qualified to teach the independent study course discipline. Independent study may not replace any courses offered at Oxbow. Credit will be awarded by using this formula: 55 hours of study = ½ credit. Independent study teachers must meet with their student at least weekly for credit to be awarded. Independent study classes will carry the designation “IS” on the transcript.
