CIC SHadow Program 2015-16

 The CIC Shadow Program is a unique experience in the LBUSD, allowing students to sample as many classes as the students choose, and experiencing MULTIPLE perspectives, as the students are set up with multiple hosts throughout the day.  (Single hosts can also be accommodated, if this is your preference)

    CURRENTLY, the LBUSD registration site is closed, as we already have 170 requests for shadows.  Should any spots open up, or if families do not respond by mid-November, I will ask the LBUSD to re-open the site for the last two to three weeks.  You should then follow the directions below.

     Students in Grade 8 interested in shadowing in the CIC program need to complete the LBUSD registration form on the LBUSD website before contacting CIC for a shadow date.  The new shadow registration application for 2015-16 has been available since Oct. 8.

1. Go to

2. Select "C" for CHOICE (Choosing a High School for incoming freshmen)

3. Click on the "Shadow Day Reservation System" option to register your student.


     After registering with LBUSD, please contact Mr. Inui at to complete the process.  Please prepare responses to the following questions.

1. Do you have a preferred date (Note: Mr. Inui can only program 2-4 students per day due to the complexity of the CIC shadow day)

2. In addition to the core subjects (see CIC 4-Year Curriculum) for freshmen, are there any electives and/or sports you would like to see?

3. Do you have any special requests (specific hosts, shortened day, lunch accommodations, et al)
