  • Labor Relations

    Yakima School District is developing a Labor Relations page to keep the community informed on collective bargaining with district employees who are represented by labor unions. Existing agreements are included on the Labor Relations page in the section "Collective Bargaining Agreements." Each bargaining group has a section on the Labor Relations page which will have updates as new contracts are negotiated. If you would like to ask a question of the Yakima School District as it relates to Labor Relations, please use the "Questions?" area on the Labor Relations page.

  • OSPI Adopts Permanent Absence Rules

    The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) has created the new Chapter 392-401 of the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) that contains substantial changes to the absence rules. This chapter defines an absence and reasons for excused absences. 

    OSPI adopted the absence rules on May 3, 2018. The rules will become effective on August 1, 2018.

    Review the adopted absence rules here. (Be sure to scroll to second page.) We strongly encourage school districts to review the final rules in detail.

    Further guidance on the new rules will be forthcoming in an official OSPI bulletin and on the OSPI Attendance Laws & Policies webpage

  • 2018 Washington State Healthy Youth Survey (HYS)

    Our district is participating in the 2018 Washington State Healthy Youth Survey during the weeks of October 8-19.

    The Healthy Youth Survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

    The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.

    Student participation is completely voluntary and anonymous.

    Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.
