As a public school, California Connections Academy enrolls students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). After enrollment in Connections Academy, the school will hold an Interim IEP meeting to review the student’s previous IEP and determine appropriateness of a parent-led Independent Study placement. The IEP team will develop an IEP appropriate to the Independent Study environment, considering a continuum of special education services. The parent remains the primary implementer of instruction for the child, with the IEP team providing support in the Independent Study setting.
For eligible students with disabilities who do not require special education, California Connections Academy develops (as needed) and implements Section 504 plans that detail appropriate supports.
