We hope that you are enjoying your summer vacation, as we prepare for the 2020-21 school year.  As of today, Imperial County Public Health Department guidelines provide that local schools remain closed to students on campus. As such, we are preparing for a school year that is likely, to begin with, distance learning when school resumes on August 11th, 2020.
When we are authorized by the Imperial County Public Health Department to bring our students back to our campuses, we will do so in accordance with the guidelines that protect the health of our students, staff, and our community. We are planning for a school year that will allow for distance learning and in-person learning as conditions allow. Our goal is to return students to the school setting while maintaining safety and limiting the spread of COVID-19. You should anticipate that the school year will progress in stages, starting from distance learning and transitioning into on-campus learning for students. Please review the student/parent handbook for changes to our guidelines and safety protocol with regards to returning to campus.
At this time we would like to request information from you in regards to what method of instruction you would prefer for your child. If you would like to have your child participate in Distance Learning for the entire first semester and not return to campus for on-campus instruction, please complete the following survey online at the link provided below or go todesertoasisnet.net to access the link on our website.
All students will need to register using the new online registration or picking up a Pre-registration packet at the front office at Desert Oasis. Registration process needs to be completed to be able to get a class schedule.  Pre-registration packets will be available beginning July 20th, between 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. All documents must be completed, dated, and signed.  Beginning this year, new students to the district must present (2) copies/originals of recent documentation from two different agencies dated June or July (IID, rent, water, gas, phone, or cable bills) to verify residency. All returning students will not be required to resubmit residency verification this school year.  It will expedite the process if you bring copies of your bills.

State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Announces
Model Continuation High Schools for 2018

SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today announced that 32 schools were newly designated as Model Continuation High Schools for 2018. These schools are recognized for creating innovative programs that focus on academics and social and emotional learning and helping students who have faced many challenges, including chronic absenteeism and truancy, get back on the path to realizing their full academic potential.

"These model continuation high schools provide a space where students can feel a sense of accomplishment and increased confidence and receive strong educational support," said Torlakson. "Creating an academically challenging yet encouraging school climate can help turn an at-risk student on the verge of dropping out into a high school graduate prepared for a future career or college."

All the schools honored offer strategic and specialized programs. For example:
Desert Oasis High School in El Centro has a counseling staff that is exceptionally dedicated to preparing students for academic opportunities after graduation. The school has cultivated strong partnership with local community colleges, hosts college orientation and financial aid workshops, and allows dual enrollment classes on campus.
