Independent Study Information

This program is designed to serve Detroit Lakes and surrounding area youth ages 16 and older. It utilizes a one-on-one or small group instructional model. Students meet with teachers for one hour per subject and complete independent study assignments. After teachers review successfully completed assignments, students are given another assignment. When a student completes a combination of teacher contact and independent study hours (1 to 4 ratio), they are awarded credit. 38 hours equals 1 quarter credit; 75 hours equals 1 semester credit; 150 hours equals a yearlong course (2 semester credits).
