Directed Studies (DS)

Grade: 9-12

Duration/Credits

Year/10 Credits

UC/CSU : None

Prerequisite: Individual Education Plan team recommendation

The Directed Studies class supports students in the completion of academic tasks assigned in their general education classes. This class allows students time to bring general education assignment questions to class in order to support assignment completion. This differs from a homework center/study hall in that students do receive periodic direct instruction in organization, learning, and study strategies, as well as counseling in self-advocacy. Through this class, students are provided the opportunity to work with their counselor on a daily basis, in order to support IEP goals and general education academic success.
