The Yakima School District recognizes and respects the uniqueness of each student, staff member and citizen within the community. Teaming together, the school community creates a learning environment that fosters fair treatment and access to educational resources and programs for all students. The American democratic system depends on equal access to the opportunities for and benefits of public education for all young people: our future leaders, voters, taxpayers, workers, parents and adult citizens (Click the Equity in Education title above for our full policy).
This is an extraordinary accomplishment and is a direct reflection of the hard work of our students, the dedication of our teachers, and the support and guidance of our parents. McKinley’s award is well deserved. In the past year(s), McKinley has implemented several improvements that have impacted our students’ success.
The Yakima School District is proud to report that three schools in our district have increased their percentage of students proficient on the Smarter Balanced Assessment resulting in the exit of their priority or focus school status by The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI)for the 2017-18 school year.
