The continuing pandemic has meant that districts have had to reevaluate the learning options that they offer their students and families. Districts have had to choose between traditional independent study and course-based independent study to create quality short- and long-term remote instruction models that best serve the needs of their students. Many of our participating districts have requested that the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE) facilitate professional learning community (PLC) platforms where districts can collaborate with one another. 

The purpose of these one-hour Independent Study Professional Learning Network (ISPLN) meetings is to focus on a problem of practice around independent study, to learn from one another, share best practices, and to be problem-solving oriented. ISPLN topics include but are not limited to: 

  • Attendance
  • Staffing
  • Self Audits
  • Master Agreement
  • Funding
  • Charter Schools
  • Short/Long Term Independent Study

ISPLN participants will learn strategies, structures, practices, policies, and procedures that these districts have adopted to effectively engage their local communities in support of improving student outcomes.

CCEE will be offering virtual ISPLN meetings every first and third Monday of every month from 10:00 am-11:00 am.
