Our Virtual Independent Study program is an alternative to in person learning available to all BCSD students whose health would be put at risk by in-person instruction as determined by the student's parent or guardian. In Virtual Independent Study students attend a full day of online instruction that is substantially equivalent in quality, intellectual challenge, and quantity to in-person classroom instruction. Students in Virtual Independent Study will have the access to the same services and resources that are available to other students and will have equal rights and privileges.
