Independent Study Program (ISP)


Long Term Independent Study Program

The Long Term Independent Study Program is an established, alternative instructional program through which all enrolled pupils in grades TK-8 may achieve curriculum objectives in a setting other than the regular classroom. Independent Study gives parents the opportunity to teach their children at home with support from a supervising, credentialed teacher.

The Independent Study Program is FREE of charge and open to all students in the Oak Grove School District and to all in Santa Clara County with an inter-district transfer.

Two options are available: Online K-12 and traditional textbook. Both options are rigorous, relevant and focused on high expectations for all students. Both are district approved and aligned to the Common Core State Standards.

Short-Term Independent Study for Traveling Students

The Long Term Independent Study Travel Program offers families an alternative to fully withdrawing from school when travel is longer than 10 school days.

This choice program moves traveling students from their local school site to OGSD Independent Study Program, and places each student on a contract to complete all assigned school work while away from the local area.

Parents need to request Independent Study at least five days in advance.  This request should be made through the school secretary and by calling the Independent Study Office at 408-225-5675 X312241
