New Directions is the independent study program in the Poway Unified School District and is connected to each PUSD school. New Directions is designed to provide 6-12 grade students an opportunity to meet middle and high school requirements independently from the regular classroom setting. Each student's academic, emotional and social needs are met in a caring, non-threatening environment. Independent study offers flexibility as its key aspect to encourage the success of every student entering the program.
