Independent and Directed Study
An Independent Study is largely student-driven, formed around a specific interest, endeavor, or product, and with a clear action plan, with a specific set of learning objectives that are developed by the student. The Independent Study must not replicate an existing CHRHS course.
Any CHRHS student may apply for an Independent or Directed Study in an area of interest during the add/drop periods. At other times during the school year, Independent/Directed Study applications are only available to students under special circumstances. Any student who has a compelling reason to arrange an Independent or Directed Study at a time OTHER than a typical add/drop period should have his or her Guidance Counselor contact Mr. Tom Gray, GT Program Coordinator, to make the necessary arrangements. Typically, this type of exception will only be made when a student is at risk of failure to graduate on time without a special arrangement.
NOTE: THE ONLINE APPLICATION FORM MUST BE COMPLETED BY THE STUDENT FROM THE STUDENT'S SCHOOL (FIVETOWNS) EMAIL ACCOUNT.
