PHS Student Technology Needs - Necesidades tecnológicas de estudiantes de PHS

As you have likely heard in messages from the AVUHSD district office, the Antelope Valley Union High School District will be providing education to our students through distance learning, beginning on April 2nd until the end of school closures, which, at this time, will extend through May 5th.

We recognize that not all students have access to computers or internet at home, and we are currently developing a plan to check out technology to students who need a Chromebook or internet to access distance learning. In order to sufficiently prepare to meet the needs of our students, we need to know which students will need to check out Chromebooks.

Please complete the Chromebook Checkout Google Form for each Palmdale High School student in your household who will need to check out a Chromebook to access distance learning. The link to the form can be found on our website at www.palmdalehs.org or as a link if you receive messages via email. 

We will follow up with details about the checkout process within the next week.

Reconocemos que no todos los estudiantes tienen acceso a computadoras o internet en casa, y actualmente estamos desarrollando un plan para verificar la tecnología a los estudiantes que necesitan un Chromebook o internet para acceder a la educación a distancia. Para prepararnos lo suficiente para satisfacer las necesidades de nuestros estudiantes, necesitamos saber qué estudiantes necesitarán para revisar Chromebooks.

Group Picture of 57 AVUHSD Medical Explorer Graduates

On Wednesday, May 15, 2019, 57 students from the Antelope Valley Union High School District (AVUHSD) graduated from the 3rd Annual Medical Exploring Post in the Antelope Valley hosted by Kaiser Permanente.

Exploring is Learning for Life’s career education program for young men and women who are at least 14 (and have completed 8th grade) and not yet 21 years-old. Exploring is all about helping young adults make more informed decisions about future careers and determine which career is the right one for them. Before being accepted into the career preparation program, each student was required to complete a competitive application process, which included teacher recommendations.

Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley physicians and employees volunteered their time to provide real-world career experiences for the explorers to help them gain practical knowledge in the medical field through a variety of activities.

As a youth-led program, students organized monthly meetings including hands-on learning presentations, a tour of the Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley Medical Offices, a tour of the Kaiser Permanente Regional Lab, community service projects, CPR training, and a graduation ceremony celebrating their accomplishments.

“Kaiser Permanente is proud to be going into our fourth year hosting the Medical Exploring Program,” adds Tamara Riley, Assistant Medical Group Administrator, Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley and Medical Exploring Post Committee Chair. “This program is meant to expose students to a variety of careers in healthcare and help guide and inspire the next generation of medical professionals who will serve the communities they grew up in.”

During the graduation ceremony, local Kaiser Permanente, AVUHSD, elected and community leaders were in attendance to extend their congratulations during a graduation ceremony where students shared their experiences, conducted live demonstrations of their learnings, as well as, a special video presentation.

The Medical Exploring Post 661 hosted by Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley is one of many youth workforce development programs, including Hippocrates Circle for middle school students and our Volunteer Program for high school students and beyond.
