In California we have "Short Term Independent Study". This is a minimum of 5 day and I am not sure if there is a maximum amount of days. A week or so before I take my son out of school I sign a contract and put down the days he will be away. All of his teachers will create work packets for the time he will be away. While he is gone he will complete the work he is given from his teachers. When we return he turns in the work and he will get credit for the work he does and the School will get credit for him attending school as long as he does the school work. We are happy because we get vacation and not pay top price for the cruise and the School is happy because they get paid the same as if he was in school. The nice thing is some of the teachers will give him special assignments based on the vacation we are going on.
