Centralized Correspondence Study Handbook for Grades K-12, 1982-83. Revised.
Winegar, Eileen, Ed.
Centralized Correspondence Study (CC/S) provides elementary and secondary instruction to those students who do not have access to a school, to those students who elect correspondence study as an option to attending local schools, and to adults who have not completed high school. The Alaska State Board of Education is the school board for CC/S and a five-member Parent Advisory Committee represents the concerns of parents and home teachers to the State Board of Education and the Department of Education. CC/S is directed by a superintendent and a principal. All advisory teachers hold State of Alaska teaching certificates. Students work at home under the supervision of an adult home teacher, usually a parent. There is no charge for enrollment in CC/S. CC/S maintains a lending library of over 10,000 items; residents of rural areas without access to a public library may also be eligible to receive monthly shipments of books (the user pays the postage) from the Alaska State Library. In addition to a chapter on general information and another on staff and organization, the handbook provides chapters on policy and procedure, elementary program, junior high program, high school program, high school course descriptions, and special instructions for high school students.
