  • Strategic Planning Initiative

    The Yakima School District is working with Performance Fact, Inc. to develop a new strategic plan for the district.

    In addition to the student voice session, stakeholders will be engaged through the core planning team, the alignment team, school board sessions, and community forums. The process will conclude in early 2020.  

    We invite you to attend community forums to share your voice in the process.

    The same content will be presented at all three sessions. They are all open to the public. Dinner will be served from 5-6pm. Translation will be available. Activities for young children will be available.  School-aged students are encouraged to participate.

  • Robertson Rockets are Rock Stars!

    Posted by YSD Stories Account on 11/19/2018

    Robertson Elementary recently hosted our annual Special Person Lunch.  This is an event to celebrate Thanksgiving and give families an opportunity to join their student for a meal at school.  We have so many families that look forward to sharing this special meal.  This year, just under 800 people enjoyed this event. Some Robertson staff put together a slide show for our families to view while they ate.  Photos in the slides include students reading “On the Edge” while completing their WIG (Wildly Important Goal), staff and students having fun together and our Leader in Me community outreach projects.  We at Robertson are doing great things.  Go Rockets! Take a peak at the Slide Show of Our Rock Stars! Once you've clicked this link click on "Learn More"

     

    We are thankful

    So many special people

  • 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. https://readywa.org/beyond/en/

  • Equity in Education

    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).
