COVID 19 Update- Independent Study for All Students

UPDATE: For the latest information regarding how The Learning Choice Academy is adapting in response to COVID-19, please refer to this page on our website. We will use that page as a central place for updates and information regarding COVID-19.

In light of the recent developments with COVID-19 and with the safety of our students and staff as our top priority, The Learning Choice Academy is moving to independent study (homeschool) for all school sites effective Monday, March 16.

This is the primary model of our school and we are confident students will be able to work at home with the support of their Educational Partner. 

Next Steps

Educational Partners will be reaching out to families on their roster to best determine individual needs starting on Monday, March 16. We’ve made some schedule adjustments to accommodate the current circumstances:

Meeting Week will be moved to March 30 through April 3 and families will make arrangements with their Educational Partner to meet virtually or in person as a small group. If possible, classes will resume the week of April 21, immediately following spring break, at which time we will evaluate the situation further. 

Special Education

All services will be done virtually or rescheduled. IEPs may be held virtually in order to meet the necessary timelines. Families will be contacted with virtual meeting information (Google Hangout or Zoom). 

Extended Units 

Agreements to pay, invoices or reimbursements can be submitted electronically to extendedunits@learningchoice.org or mailed to:

The Learning Choice Academy 

Attn: Extended Units

La Mesa, CA 91941

Field Trips

All field trips and events are suspended until further notice. If the event or field trip is not available to be rescheduled then refunds will be processed and mailed within three weeks. Registered participants will be notified of the status one week prior to the event. We have to follow the direction of all sponsoring organizations.
