Bassett Unified School District is inviting parents, students and the community to attend Open House events through Thursday, May 19, showcasing the engaging academics and programs at each of its schools. Schools will feature campus tours of their newly renovated and modernized classrooms, presentations on student and staff achievements, and meet and greets with school staff and administrators. Bassett High’s showcase will include an alumni and parent panel discussion on the school’s academics and programs.
Bassett Unified’s top spellers will compete in the Los Angeles County Scripps Regional Spelling Bee from 8 to 9 a.m. Saturday, March 9 at the North Hollywood High School Auditorium, 5231 Colfax Ave., North Hollywood.
Bassett High School’s Pathways Showcase introduced eighth-graders from Edgewood Academy and Torch Middle School as well as current ninth-graders to academic pathways in health care, business, engineering and education on Jan. 30. The event also highlighted visual and performing arts (VAPA) classes.
A podcast launched in fall 2015 by two Bassett Unified teachers on special assignment (TOSAs) celebrated its 100th podcast this month and logged its 70,000th download by educators who are keen to learn ways to integrate technology into their instructional plans. Called “TOSAs Talking Tech,” the podcast was created by Tom Covington and Michael Jephcott to connect with District educators with busy schedules. The show’s popularity skyrocketed after the duo presented at classroom tech conferences in 2017.
