Davis School for Independent Study  

Davis School for Independent Study (DSIS), established in 1991, is a Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accredited K-12 school in the Davis Joint Unified School District that serves a diversity of learners. The DSIS Elementary Home Study is designed for K-6 students and supports a home-based, parent-guided educational process with the parent recognized as the primary instructor. The focus is to ensure quality education according to each child’s individual strengths and growth areas. Each DSIS supervising teacher meets weekly with the home study family to monitor student progress and to provide curriculum guidance and instructional activities. The educational program is guided by current state standards, through the use of district-adopted materials.

In addition to meeting with home study families, the supervising teachers provide a variety of workshops, field trips, and other educational and enrichment activities. The workshops meet weekly and serve students in a multi-age format. Workshop content draws from all areas of the curriculum to enrich the home study experience, while providing opportunities for cooperative group work, and social interactions with other students.
