The Wasco Union High School District will begin reopening both schools for in-person instruction starting the week of October 26th, 2020. To reopen schools safely, only small groups of students at both Wasco High and Independence High will begin to return throughout the remainder of the Fall Semester. All students may return on an A/B schedule (only 50% at a time), 1-2 days / week starting January 25th, 2021.
Title IX applies to harassment by students, harassment by administrators/teachers/staff, and harassment by volunteers or school visitors. For information related to the definition of sexual harassment, how to file a complaint of sexual harassment (Title IX), related statutes of limitations, and the investigation process and procedures please review the Wasco Union High School's board policy and administrative regulations on the Title IX page of the district website.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a 2020-2021 LCAP will not be developed. In it's place, districts published an LCAP Operations Report in Spring 2020 describing how students were served during the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. As the COVID-19 pandemic did not resolve during the summer, districts were required to publish a 2020-2021 Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan to communicate how students will be served during both Distance Learning and In-Person Instruction.
The WUHSD Board of Trustees meets the second Thursday of every month. At this time the meetings are being held virtually. They are usually held in the Wasco High School Library (Room 1101), just north of the Auditorium (1900 Seventh Street) at 6:00 pm. It is most convenient to park in the Cafeteria parking lot and enter Wasco High through the gates between the Main Office and the Auditorium.
Bakersfield College is expanding access to college courses in Wasco for both high school students and adults. The Early College program at Wasco High allows high school students to begin taking college courses for free while in high school. Many of the college course offerings lead to a Certificate or Degree and many are transferable to the CSU and UC system. High School students can access college courses during the school day, after school, and/or over the summer as part of their Early College program and adults can take classes in the evening on the Independence High School campus. Contact the Wasco High School District Office at 758-8447 for more information.
