I am having difficulty singing in head voice. I am a bass who can also sing very high falsetto. However, when I try singing a scale, there is always a few notes between chest voice and head voice that I can't hit. This is a problem that I have had since I was in 6th grade, and it has continued for two years now. I am wondering if there is any way to regain that part of my range.

I also have this problem. I am more or less a bass, and my range cuts off in chest voice at around a G or G#, but when I try to sing in that same range with falsetto, the tone is very weak and sometimes I drop notes or crack them when I make the switch between voices. The answer to this problem is very simple:

Practice.

To achieve the fluent motion between voices simply practice pushing the limits of your range. Sing a tone well in the range of your chest voice and slur it up to well above your range by switching to falsetto, and then slur the tone back into chest voice. The goal of this exercise is to create a seamless transition between the two voices, and eventually even blend their two tones so that its harder for a listener to tell where the switch is. I got this exercise from a video I saw a while back, if I can find that video I will post a link here. Goodluck!
