From now until the end of April is peak Scholarship season. Seniors need to be searching for and applying for scholarships dollars. There is a scholarship for just about everyone. Make sure your senior is checking the Scholarship Bulletin on a regular basis and checking the College & Career Center google classroom. Many local scholarships will be coming up over the following months and local and regional scholarships are ones our seniors win each year.
Are you interested in starting your own scholarship or have one to promote to our students? Please contact Mr. Soderback (email@example.com).
Students who are looking for a job can join us every other Tuesday after school for JOB LAB online. The next session will be on February 9th at 2:45 PM - please register here.
Students who do get a job and are under 18 will need to have a work permit application signed by one of their parents, the new employer and Vista High School. The entire process is done online via email this year. This is the work permit application that needs to be filled in and emailed to Mr. Soderback (firstname.lastname@example.org).

School Accountability Reports (SARC)
State law requires all public schools receiving state funding to prepare and distribute a SARC. The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators. A hard copy will be made available upon request at the school site.
The SARC contains all of the following:
- Demographic data
- School safety and climate for learning information
- Academic data
- School completion rates
- Class sizes
- Teacher and staff information
- Curriculum and instruction descriptions
- Postsecondary preparation information
- Fiscal and expenditure data
