Superintendent's Update on Independent Study: 8.4.21
Dear Students, Families, and Employees:
As we continue our planning for the 2021-22 school year, we wanted to share some essential information with you. Burbank Unified School District is returning to in-person instruction for the 2021-22 school year with health and safety protocols in place as directed by our guiding agencies. The California Department of Education (CDE) has authorized school districts to return to full in-person instruction for the upcoming school year, with an alternative option for independent study.
For this school year, the 2021-22 Enacted Budget, Assembly Bill (AB) 130, allows for only two instructional models: in-person learning and the voluntary alternative model of independent study. The State is no longer allowing a distance learning option that was offered last year.
If interested in independent study, please see the attached documents for more information.
