Special Update - April 19, 2020
Although our 2019-20 season was cut short, we are hoping to pick right back up in the 2020-21 season. The National Science Olympiad committee has decided to "replay" the rules from this past year, which are available here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Nd0Ojhr01iX4rudMcjkywgHUsSMpKEeR. Anyone can access these rules to get a head start on prepping for the coming year. Be advised, however, that there may be minor changes to these rules that integrate clarifications and problems that arose during this past season. So, basically, treat these rules as Draft Rules until further notice. Please READ HERE for more information. You can also visit www.soinc.org for general national information.
We had a record number of registered students last fall. In fact, it was too many as most of our twenty-three classes had 30-45 students initially registered. This posed safety concerns as well as created challenges for our volunteer coaches. Therefore, it is very likely we will administer an entrance exam this coming year. We don't yet know what this will look like, but we our goal is to register students who are truly motivated to learn, grow and compete in our program.
Interested Coaches: please complete the Coaching Interest Form by clicking the button below if you have not done so already. Due to the volume of coaching inquiries and limited spaces we need to fill, it is likely we will not be able to communicate with all interested parents. We are looking for the best fit with the most qualified coaches in order to give students the best possible learning experience. Student Coaches (new and returning) should fill out this form as well.
COVID-19 Status: The answer is ... we don't know. We have had no further instruction from PUSD, OVMS, or Science Olympiad. We suspect next year's season will be modified at the very least. We will proceed under the presumption that we will have a regular season, but I really doubt that will be the case. We will give updates via this Interest List (please sign up below if you have not already) as we learn new details. Note that Google Groups doesn't work well with Yahoo and Hotmail accounts.
Stay healthy and safe. Please email us at email@example.com with any questions.
