Families may request to transfer from their home school to Independent Study by completing the form below.
 
There are two alternative education schools in SRVUSD. Parents can request a transfer to either school.  Venture School provides independent study for 1-12 grades students and Del Amigo High School is a continuation school for high school students (age 16-18).
 
The Independent Study program at Venture School is a fully accredited comprehensive school for students in grades 1-12, and delivers the curriculum through independent study. Venture helps students to pursue their educational opportunities outside the classroom, yet within the framework of the educational requirements of SRVUSD. Please note that this means you need to disenroll your student from their current school, and then enroll them at Venture. This process takes approximately one week. When and if you want your student to return to their home school, it will be on a space-available basis, which means the space you are offered at that time might be at a different school. Explore the Venture School section of our website (see tab above) for additional information about our independent study program. If you are interested in this option to enroll in Venture School, please go to: www.srvusd.net/transfers or contact scattarusa@srvusd.net for more information.
 
Continuation high school is offered through Del Amigo High School located at Venture School. Del Amigo is a fully accredited  school for high school students age 16-18. Enrollment in Del Amigo is limited and transfers are made when space becomes available.
