independent study program expands for 2017-18

Oceanside CA— In an effort to stem the flow of students to charter schools and provide them with more flexible ways to get an education, the Oceanside Unified School District has come up with a unique new program to meet the needs of students. Simply titled ‘Non-Traditional Education’, the program offers a blending of traditional schooling and independent study with teachers and online academic courses.


“We wanted to offer an alternative to the charter school experience, what ever that may be,” explained Dr. Jessica Poumele, Principal at the Clair Burgener Learning Center, 707 Carey Road, the main campus for the program. “We decided to meet the students and families where they are. Meaning, students can come in every day for two, three or four hours a day or they can come in once a week or even Skype us. As long as we are getting their work and they are progressing through their classes, then we’re good.” continued Dr. Poumele, “We have all kinds of support to offer. Whatever the student and the family needs.”
