  • 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.

     For more information about the February 11th levy measures, please go to

  • Northwest Association of Blind Athletes Annual Spring Event at Eisenhower!

    Posted by Kina Blackburn on 4/11/2019

    On April 9th, students with visual impairments from all over the valley came to Eisenhower High School to participate in a Paralympic Experience. The Northwest Association of Blind Athletes (NWABA) has been providing this fantastic opportunity to our area for the past 4 years. Every spring, they provide our students with the opportunity to participate in activities such as tandem bike riding, goal ball, judo, track and field events, side by side soccer, beep baseball and much more! This year’s event included beep baseball and side by side soccer. This was the largest turn out for our event, 29 students participated in a fun-filled day of adapted sports! Students came from as far as Pasco, as close as West Valley and everywhere in between. This opportunity not only allows our students to become familiar with adapted sports, but also the chance to make new friends who face similar experiences and challenges. Families are also encouraged to attend the event and friendships have also blossomed between parents of students. The students also have the opportunity to participate in White Cane Day provided by NWABA annually in Selah every fall. These events have created friendships and the events turn more into reunions every year! We would like to thank Eisenhower High School for hosting such a valuable event and the PE team for their flexibility and support. Thank you also to NWABA for creating these experiences that allow our students to explore such a wide variety of adapted sports!

  • National Athletic Training Month

    Posted by YSD Stories Account on 3/14/2019

    March is National Athletic Training Month, and we would like to take the opportunity to provide the public with some more information about athletic trainers.  Athletic trainers are an integral component of maintaining the health and safety of the student athletes in our Yakima School District high schools.  Eisenhower and Davis are in the minority of schools in the state of Washington to be fortunate enough to have 2 athletic trainers who are working to provide care to our athletes.

    Athletic trainers are health care professionals who render service or treatment, under the direction of or in collaboration with a physician, in accordance with their education and training and the states’ statutes, rules and regulations. As a part of the health care team, services provided by athletic trainers include injury and illness prevention, wellness promotion and education, emergent care, examination and clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. 

    Athletic trainers are well educated in concussion evaluation and management, sudden cardiac arrest, emergency action planning, CPR/First Aid, and many other critical skills that are important to providing the highest level of care.  All athletic trainers have a bachelor’s degree and many have a Master’s degree or higher, and participated in extensive hours of clinical work during their athletic training program, as well as passed a national boards certification exam to obtain their certification.  In the state of Washington, Athletic Trainers are licensed through the department of health and must obtain 25 continuing education units per year to maintain their certification.

    At Eisenhower High School, the two athletic trainers are Kelsie McKimmy and Josh Holliday.  Kelsie has been an athletic trainer for 11 years and obtained her athletic training degree from Washington State University, and also has her Master’s degree in Sports Psychology and Doctorate degree in Health Psychology.  Kelsie has been at Eisenhower High School for 3 years, and also teaches the sports medicine program.  Josh has been an athletic trainer for 8 years and obtained his athletic training degree from Whitworth University, and his Master’s degree in Sports Medicine at Utah State University.  Josh has been at Eisenhower High School for 5 years, and he is the instructor for the Physical Therapy Technician program at YV-Tech.

    At Davis High School, the two athletic trainers are Chris Balm and Noel Cisneros.  Chris has been an athletic trainer for 21 years and obtained his athletic training degree from Central Washington University.  Chris has been at Davis High School for 20 years as both the athletic trainer and the sports medicine instructor.  Noel has been an athletic trainer for 15 years and obtained his athletic training degree from Central Washington University.  Noel has been an athletic trainer at Davis High School for 4 years and has been a teacher in the PE department for 16 years.
