In addition to in-person instruction and in response to Assembly Bill AB130 signed by Governor Newsom, PUAS students until now have been provided the option to enroll in INDEPENDENT STUDY.
However, In an effort to provide consistency and ensure the best setting for our students to succeed within our current testing season, we are temporarily pausing (as of Monday, May 9, 2022) any new enrollments into Independent Study.
Background for this action:
Currently, all of our elementary and middle schools have begun the state assessments in ELA and Math along with Science, depending on the grade level. Soon after the state assessments conclude, diagnostic and placement assessments will begin. Additionally, our high school is in the middle of Advanced Placement (AP) exams and is gearing up for finals. All of these assessments and exams are critical in identifying students for acceleration and intervention. They are also instrumental in determining appropriate placement for the next school year and even credit for some. As always, thank you for your continued partnership.
Our goal remains consistent in ensuring our students have the best opportunities to continue excelling academically, socially and emotionally on our school campuses!
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
Please use this form to request to return to in-person learning. All requests will be accommodated within 5 instructional days. Your student will continue with Independent Study classes until you receive an email with instructions for the exact date to come back to school in person.
