Step 3: Grades 8 and 9 Student Learning Plan and Responsibilities Agreement
Our program has two options:
Option A: Full time with SCIDES (we are the new school of record), or
Option B Cross-enrolled (stay enrolled in current school of record, taking only one or two courses at SCIDES)
Please complete a Student Learning Plan (aka SLP) for the grade and program option you are applying for. This is a draft SLP of the courses we will cover together this year.
Once the registration package is complete, your grade 8 and 9 SCIDES Advisor will connect with you, and together you will make the necessary SLP personalization’s for your family needs and values (this is a dynamic document, continuously changing).
Included in this document you will also find the SCIDES Responsibilities Agreement which outlines the expectations of our program.
See the link below to obtain a copy. Please send in this SLP and Agreement to SCIDES, once signed, using one of the options listed above.
Step 4: Contact SCIDES to speak to an Advisor about your program ASAP

Evidence of active engagement may include the successful completion of a part or whole unit, or connecting with your teacher(s), such as responding to teacher emails and feedback in a timely fashion.
