District Independent Contract Education


The District Independent Contract Education (DICE) program is a voluntary alternative educational opportunity. The program is designed to serve elementary, middle, and high school students. Students are instructed by certificated teachers in individual and/or small groups.


DICE has three programs of study:

Direct instruction: Students are generally seen four hours per week. In addition to the direct instruction, students are expected to complete 18 - 30 hours per week of homework between sessions.  

Home & Hospital Instruction: For students confined to their homes due to physical disability, illness, injury, or confinement for psychological or psychiatric reasons. Instruction is provided by a teacher in the student’s home or another setting. Students in the Home Instruction program are served 4-6 hours weekly, depending on their academic, physical or mental health status.
