You are required to meet with your teacher every week. Your attendance for the whole week is based on meeting with your teacher and turning in your work. You are expected to have all assigned work completed when you come to your appointment. YOU MUST BE ON TIME.

Because attendance credit in independent study is earned in a non-traditional manner, the usual principles of excused and unexcused absences do not apply.

If you have a REAL EMERGENCY and cannot keep your appointment, call your teacher. School Phone # (916) 433-5187 or you may go to the school’s webpage to locate your teacher and email/call from there. You MAY be able to reschedule your appointment for a different day that week, but there are no guarantees. If you miss your appointment (even for a legitimate reason) and your teacher cannot see you at another time, you will be considered truant.

Two truancies will result in a note home and possibly a meeting with administration. Three or more truancies may result in your removal from the school.

CSUS tutors are available to work with Capital City students every weekday from 9:00 A. M. to 2:00 P. M. in the multi-purpose room. The tutors work one-on-one with students, which allows them to establish a relationship and to move forward academically as a team. The schedule will be posted in the multi-purpose room. Once they have signed up for a time, students will be expected to keep their weekly tutoring appointment. After two missed appointments, they will be taken off the schedule.
