Jason Wang Wins LA County Science Fair, entry into 2021 International Science & Engineering Fair

Congratulations to Sophomore Jason Wang, who won the top award at the 71st Annual Los Angeles County Science & Engineering Fair (LACSEF), entry into the 2021 Regeneron International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF) to be held virtually May 3-6.

Wang’s winning research project was, “Polar Vortex and Long-Duration Events: Climate Change in the Upper Midwest and Canada.” (See announcement below)

Wang investigated whether areas most affected by a meandering jet stream have also experienced an increase in “stuck” weather patterns such as longer cold spells or heat waves. Wang analyzed NOAA public weather datasets on Google BigQuery, and used linear regression and Tableau to visualize regional climate trends over recent decades.

In addition to being designated an ISEF finalist as one of LA County’s top 7 projects, Wang received 1st Place in his Earth/Space Sciences category (for the second year-in-a-row), the American Meteorology Society Prize (for the fourth consecutive year), along with awards from the Office of Naval Research/U.S. Navy, Mu Alpha Theta Mathematics Society, the Professional Engineers of California Government, and advances to the California State Science & Engineering Fair.

Jason Wang headed to International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF)

Student CLASSROOM Expectations

  • Teachers will be taking attendance everyday. Students will need to keep their cameras for attendance, participation, and checking for understanding. Teachers will let students know if they can turn off their camera during certain times in the class.
  • Students are not allowed to record without teacher permission.
  • New legislation (AB 77) states that if a student is absent 3 days in the week, the parent will be contacted to support the student to re-engage with Distance Learning.
  • Normal grading policy begins the first day of school. Teachers will cover their grading policy in their syllabus as well as in their Back to School Night presentation.
  • More information regarding Distance Behavioral Expectations is located below .


Please remember that attendance counts, every period, every day. Students will be marked absent if they are not on camera at the beginning of each period to verify their attendance.

If your student is having difficulty logging in, please contact your teacher immediately, and remember to clear their attendance by the end of the day.

All single-period absences will need to be reconciled through the attendance office by the student. If marked absent, students will receive an email from the attendance office notifying them that they have been marked absent. The notification will include the date and period of the absence. The student will need to contact the Attendance Department to make any necessary corrections to their individual period attendance. For full-day absences, a parent/guardian must contact the attendance office by the end of the day.

We are so happy to see all of our students online and learning. They are working hard and making us proud. Keep up the great work!
