The Travis School District plans to offer an expanded home-based independent study program in the 2020-21 school year that will allow children and teens from kindergarten through 12th grades to learn the curriculum outside of the classroom.
The program will have students work with a credentialed advisory instructor who will help create a plan that reaches state standards, district officials said in a statement. Educational materials will be provided to parents, along with additional support as necessary.
District officials said as restrictions on gatherings are lifted, families will be offered optional participation in field trips, parent workshops and other family support activities.
