School Calendar Amended

Dear Parents and Guardians:
As a result of the very mild winter, the School District has unused cancellation (snow) days. At their March 14th meeting, the School Board approved amending the school calendar as follows:

  • Memorial Day: In addition to the already planned closure of Monday, May 30th, school will be closed Friday, May 27th, Tuesday, May 31st, and Wednesday, June 1st.

In the event that the district is required to use additional cancellation (snow) days we will adjust the Memorial Day break accordingly.

If you need additional information, please contact your son/daughter's building administrator. As always, thank you for your support of our school district.

The competition workstations consisted of:

  • A Subaru and Toyota Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Safety workstation where students needed to demonstrate the correct service procedures for disconnecting the High Voltage Battery from the vehicle.
  • A Hunter Engineering station which required the students to use their knowledge of alignment angles, vehicle Steering and Suspension geometry as well as using the GSP 9000 Wheel Balancer from Hunter Engineering.
  • A Heating and Air Conditioning System Diagnosis and Testing station requiring the students to understand how an A/C system works and use tools and equipment to diagnose and suggest repair.
  • A CAN BUS Workstation requiring the students to understand terminology and diagnostic checks associated with servicing todays vehicles.
  • A STEM workstation requiring them to comprehend applied science as they relate to the present and future of the automobile industry.
  • A Wire harness repair station sponsored by Lexus requiring students to solder wires and remove and replace wires from computerized components using the correct procedures.
  • Engine Mechanical Performance Diagnosis Workstation by General Motors
  • Information Retrieval Workstation by ShopKey
  • Shop and Environmental Safety Workstation
  • BMW - Job Interview Workstation

The hands on portion of the contest required the students to interpret a repair order on a 2016 Kia Sorento and perform the 3 C's, which is to verify the CONCERN, find the CAUSE and CORRECT the problem. The students were given 3 hours to return their vehicle to perfect condition.

All competitors were given merchandise from vehicle manufacturers and participating schools including: jackets, shirts, hats, and tools. For their 6th place finish the students were awarded:

  • All expenses paid trip to New York City and entrance in to the International Car Show provided by the Pennsylvania Automotive Association.
  • $15,000 Automotive Training Center Scholarship
  • $15,000 Lincoln Technical Institute Scholarship
  • $10,000 Ohio Technical College Scholarship
  • $8,000 University of Northwestern Ohio Scholarship
  • $2,000 Universal Technical Institute Scholarship
  • Snap-on Screwdriver set and a tool carrying case

This was a great competition which allows young students the chance to test their skills on newer technology. With the technology getting more complex every year, the need to attract bright young people into this trade is becoming more and more difficult. This contest is one way to attract this new talent. The Manufacturers realize this, and put a large amount of money into making this contest very challenging and rewarding for the students.

The District and Dr. Watson in particular would like to send out a special thank you to the extremely helpful staff at Dickson City Kia (Service Manager Barry McClain is a WASD Graduate) who provided the Kia Sorento and computer to practice analysis and diagnosis of the vehicle, and offered their technical expertise throughout the preparation period. It is with the cooperation of local businesses, the WASD School Board, Administration, and faculty that our students can be so successful. This is Wallenpaupack Auto Technology's 6th trip to Nationals, placing 9th in 2004, 6th in 2008, 11th in 2010, 5th in 2014, 1st in 2015 and 6th this year. All the Automotive students have benefited from our successes in these contests by having the newest technology in the shop during the contest preparation.

Notice Regarding Student Insurance - Updated for 2015-2016!

Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the parents/guardians, in the event of a student accident, to provide for accidental injury expenses either through insurance or cash payment to health care providers. For this reason, the School District would like to make you aware of the availability of a low cost, standard school approved insurance policy.

The School District does not provide insurance coverage for students. If you do not have insurance or the financial ability to cover potential injury expenses, we encourage you to review this Student Accident Insurance document.

If you choose to purchase insurance through this program, please have your child return the completed insurance form with your payment to their school and it will be forwarded to the insurance company to process.

We hope this program can be a valuable service for you and your family.
