Locally, the district offers an Independent Learning Center (ILC) which serves students grades pre-K through 12, who are enrolled in one of Chatham’s Distance Programs. The ILC is a hybrid educational model that encourages self-direction while providing academic structure and support with an on-site facilitator.
At the ILC, Chatham provides special needs service, cultural and vocational classes, social-emotional learning opportunities, music lessons, science blocks- and project and placed-based learning modules.
The ILC provides local parents opportunities for working together and receiving guidance from the on-site facilitator.
The ILC is open three days a week, six hours per day. Currently, due to Covid-19, programming is limited, however the facility- classrooms, academic supplies, internet, library, and gym- are available for students and families. There are Covid safety measures in place to ensure families stay safe while still having access to the facility.
