CUSD's Independent Study Program

This fall, CUSD families have the option to enroll in a voluntary K-12 educational program, Claremont Alternative Learning Model (CALM). This model is for students whose health would be put at risk by in-person instruction.  For families requiring a remote learning option, the independent study model offers flexibility in scheduling and implementation as students and families work closely together with a certified educator to reach educational goals. 

Enrollment in this program will require a written learning agreement developed and agreed upon by a team which includes the parent, teacher, and administrator.

What does CALM instruction look like?

  • Transitional Kindergarten to grade 3 — daily synchronous instruction for all students throughout the school year with a CUSD or Edgenuity teacher (depending on numbers)

  • Grades 4 to 8 — daily live interaction and at least weekly synchronous instruction (1 x week) for all students throughout the school year with a CUSD or Edgenuity teacher (depending on numbers)

  • Grades 9 to 12 — weekly synchronous (1 x week) instruction for all students throughout the school year with a CUSD or Edgenuity teacher (depending on numbers)

What is "live interaction" and "synchronous instruction?"

  • “Live interaction” means interaction between the student and CUSD classified or certificated staff, and may include peers, provided for the purpose of maintaining school connectedness, including but not limited to: wellness checks, progress monitoring, provision of services and instruction. This interaction may take place in person or in the form of internet or telephonic communication.

  • “Synchronous instruction” means classroom-style instruction or designated small group or one-on-one instruction delivered in person, or in the form of internet or telephonic communications and involving live, two-way communication between the teacher and student. Synchronous instruction shall be provided by the teacher of record for that student.
