Washington Unified Alternative Education Students and Parents/Guardians:
Welcome back to the Alternative Education Program. We are excited for the start of 2020-2021 School Year. The following information will help you prepare for our Orientation Meetings and the start of school.
School starting with Distance Learning: At the direction of the Governor, our schools will start with Distance Learning for the 2020-2021 school year. Easton High and Easton Community Day School students will continue to work through the Edgenuity Online platform. Our campus will remain closed until it is safe to return. We look forward to having students back on campus in the future.
Curriculum: Our Easton High and Community Day School students will continue to be assigned online classes through Edgenuity. This allows for students to work on their individual courses while at home. Our students are familiar with the curriculum and using the same program we used last year allows for a smoother transition once we are able to welcome students back to campus.
Devices: Students that need a device to complete online work from home will be able to check-out a District owned Chromebook from our office. This can be arranged at our Orientation meetings in the next few weeks.
Orientation Meetings: Orientation meetings are currently being scheduled to cover distance learning details with parents and students. If you have not scheduled your meeting, please call our office at (559) 495-5690.
ELM High- Independent Study: Independent Study students will continue their traditional ISP Program. Once a week, students will pick up packets from the Mary Ella Brown Center on an assigned day. They will receive instruction and intervention through phone contact and virtual meetings arranged by the teachers weekly. Our staff have been scheduling Orientation and Contract Meetings to cover credits, transcripts, graduation status and contract details like packet pickup days and assigned classes. Online Independent Study is also available and can be arranged at the Orientation-Contract Meeting. If you have not scheduled your meeting, please call our office at (559) 495-5690.
We value your feedback. I encourage you to call our office with any questions or concerns about the school’s re-opening plan. Our office is open most days from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.Grant Thor

Welcome to the Washington Unified School District Alternative Education Program. We are proud to offer students in our district options for their education. We strive to make our program meet the goals of the individuals we serve. Our program consists of three schools with unique purposes to support and meet the needs of students and their families.
Easton High School
Easton High School is located a quarter mile from Washington Union High School near the John Ventura Stadium. The Easton High campus is a positive atmosphere with small classrooms where students that are credit deficient can work toward being transferred to WUHS on graduation track or focus on earning their High School Diploma through our site.
Easton Community Day School
Like Easton High School, Easton Community Day School is also located on the site near WUHS. Easton Community Day serves students with attendance and/or behavior challenges. The school provides curriculum in Life Skills, Character, Drug and Alcohol Prevention, Social and Emotional Care areas along with traditional core subject education.
E.L.M. High School
In addition to the two on campus schools, our Alternative Education Program also offers Independent Study through ELM High School. Both in-person and online programs are available to students.
