- 2018 Graduation Program
- Does NOT count toward Adult Graduation Program
Independent Directed Studies 10, 11, 12 (IDS)
Independent Directed Studies 10, 11, 12 cannot be used toward Adult Graduation Credits
Combine your passion with your talent to earn up to four course credits in Independent Directed Studies! You can work with the IDS teacher to build your own course based on training that you wish to take locally and at least one learning outcome from a Ministry approved course. Example: create an outdoor education focus by combining other courses such as Wilderness First Aid, Swift Water Rescue, and C. O. R. E. hunter training to focus on the PE 12 learning outcome of safety in alternate physical environments.
Or you can pursue your own learning (by working with your online teacher/mentor) to develop a project that meets at least one learning outcome from a senior Ministry approved course. Examples: write and direct your own play, design and create a hologram, design and conduct your own science experiments, design and build a useful invention, create a documentary.
You are only limited by your imagination, available materials, and one course connection. Each thirty hours of work earns another credit to a maximum of four credits (120 hours). Students may begin an IDS course at any point in the year. Watch this video for more detailed information about the course format.
