  • Be Counted! 2020 Census

    Census 2020 The census is a way for our community to seek the necessary financial support from the government that it needs.  Our schools depend on the census count for accurate program funding. In mid-March, you will receive an invitation to participate in the census from the Census Bureau. Be sure to count everyone in your household - even infants.  Responding to the census is the law, however, it is against the law for the Census Bureau to inquire about personal information such as immigration status.  It is illegal for the Census Bureau to pass on your contact information to other government entities. They use your contact info, such as your name and address, to know if you have already been counted. Once you have responded, you will no longer receive notices from the Census Bureau and a census worker will not come to your home.  If you have any questions, we have put together videos and information for you online at

  • Feb 11 Election Results

    Thank you voters Thank you, voters. On the February 11th ballot, the YSD proposed two propositions. One passed and one did not.

    The proposition that passed was a replacement levy (Educational Programs & Operations Levy) that will cost voters an estimated $2.50/$1000 of home value. When we ran this same levy in 2016 it passed at approximately $3.04/$1000. This Educational Programs and Operations Levy also brings Levy Equalization Assistance from the state which more than doubles its value.  THANK YOU for passing this levy.

    The second proposition was for much-needed facility maintenance of which, due to financial challenges, the YSD has had to defer costs. Proposition 2 was proposed at an estimated $.54/$1000 of home value. This proposition very narrowly failed by less than half of one percent. We respect the democratic process and although this revenue is needed, we will not be re-running this levy measure again in this calendar year. We will propose reductions and will work to better educate the community on the need for this revenue.

    Thank you for your continued support of the Yakima School District.

  • What is the High School and Beyond Plan?

    The High School and Beyond Plan process is a graduation requirement that supports students in exploring their interests, planning high school coursework that is aligned to those interests, keeping track of major assessment scores, and logging work and other relevant experience. The Plan is designed to enable students to successfully pursue education or training after they graduate high school.
