WHO MAY ENROLL AT CAL PREP?

WHO MAY ENROLL AT CAL PREP?

If your child has an Individualized Education Program (IEP), please contact your child's Case Carrier regarding placement in an independent study school. The IEP placement meeting must be held before a student can enroll into Cal Prep.
 
Please note: Online learning is not for everyone. It requires a great deal of self-discipline and self-monitoring, which are common characteristics of independent learners. Online classes also require a great deal of reading and interacting with others through the use of discussion boards and instant messaging.
