This is an Independent Study program which requires the student to be responsible for getting his/her coursework done and returning it to an instructor in a timely manner. Students may complete assignments at the ALC and/or take their assignments home. All tests are taken at the ALC site.

Students are given a syllabus for every course they are enrolled in. It outlines what needs to be completed for the class and helps the student judge when and how often they should be in attendance. New Paths ALC classes are pass/fail with a minimum of 80% competency required on assignments and tests to pass. Student will receive ½ credit for each class successfully finished

A class is completed when all coursework is satisfactorily completed and student has logged in a minimum of 15 hours of face to face contact time. Students are allowed to complete up to 3 classes during the summer term (case by case basis). The last day to enroll will be June 19th.

A copy of the certificate is faxed/emailed to the resident high school. If a student is unable to complete a course during the summer term they will have to enroll within the first month of the upcoming school year in order to keep units and hours earned.

If there are questions or concerns, please contact Crystal.
