Students who enroll in the Associated Student Body class (ASB) do so because they recognize that there is more to being successful in school than simply doing homework. Having a positive atmosphere during the school day where students feel wanted and accepted is critical to their success. ASB class members focus on providing engaging activities that ensure a well-rounded high school experience.

Students in ASB plan, organize, and participate in such activities as formal and informal dances, Homecoming, Spirit Week, grade-level competitions, community awareness projects, cultural events, fundraisers and Staff Recognition throughout the year.

Students must maintain high academic and citizenship grades to remain in the class and are additionally required to work approximately 10 hours each month outside of the class. Students are chosen for the class each spring for the following school year. If you are interested in being a leader at LnHS, consider applying to the class by March 29, 2019.

Annual Independent City Event a Success

Earlier this month, AVUHSD hosted its annual Independent City event where foster youth are able to prepare for adulthood and emancipation.

Earlier this month, AVUHSD hosted its annual Independent City event where foster youth are able to prepare for adulthood and emancipation. The students are placed in a simulated city environment where they adopt a persona and conduct personal business at locations such as a bank, county office or DMV. They also are asked to make purchases such as buying a car. At the end of the event, our students are better positioned to become independent and enter adulthood. The students also heard from a motivating speaker and had a chance to win hundreds of dollars in prizes including gift cards and a laptop. We would like to thank all the staff, volunteers, and local organizations for making this event possible. We also thank our students for participating and investing in their futures!

Antelope Valley Union High School District Open Enrollment Happening Now - Deadline March 15, 2019

If you would like to attend a high school within the Antelope Valley Union High School District other than your school of residence, you will need to apply for "Open Enrollment" no later than Friday, March 15, 2019. 

During the last week of February 2019, Open Enrollment application packets for the new 2019-20 school year were mailed to the homes of current eighth grade public school students, returning high school students, and to the principals of charter and private junior high schools. Application packets are also available at all local high schools, in the AVUHSD Student Services office located at 548 W. Lancaster Blvd. in Lancaster, and on the AVUHSD website at https://www.avdistrict.org/parents/open-enrollment .

Open Enrollment applications for the 2019-20 school year must be received by the deadline of Friday, March 15, 2019 in the Student Services office at 548 West Lancaster Boulevard, Suite #102, Lancaster, CA 93534-2571 (note that the office closes at 4:30pm). Applications may be submitted by mail, in person, or by fax to 661-949-6292. They may also be scanned and e-mailed to: rhickman@avhsd.org. According to Board Policy, late applications will not be accepted with the exception of students who have a sibling attending the school requested. However, late applications from students who moved into the area after the deadline may be considered based on available space. Result letters will be mailed in April 2019. 

There will be a limited number of 2019-20 Open Enrollment spaces available at each high school: Antelope Valley, Eastside, Highland, Knight, Lancaster, Littlerock, Palmdale, and Quartz Hill High Schools. These include general Open Enrollment spaces as well as some spaces specific to particular academies: AVHS Engineering/Green Enterprise Academy, EHS Biomedical Sciences Academy, HHS Public Service Academy, KHS Digital Design & Engineering Academy, Lancaster HS Multimedia and Engineering Academy, Littlerock HS Agribusiness Academy, PHS Engineering Academy, and PHS Health Careers Academy. Also, qualified students entering 11th grade may apply for the QHHS International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. Students interested in career academies must also submit a separate academy application through the Academy Coordinator at the requested school. According to California Education Code 35160.5, Open Enrollment approvals will be on a lottery basis (random selection—not first come, first served). In addition to these spaces, all qualified sibling Open Enrollment applications to all schools will be approved.
