  • Levy Information  

    Please Vote on February 11

    The Yakima School District depends on the local community to fund critical education programs and services through local levies. Despite attempted legislative improvements to the way education is funded in Washington State, the essential educational elements on which students and families rely are not fully funded. YSD works hard to support schools as efficiently as possible, and administrative spending at the district was recently recognized as the leanest among Yakima County school districts.  Fortunately, funding from local levies bridges the gap between what the state funds and the true cost of operating a school district.

    The Yakima School District has the following two essential funding measures on the February 2020 ballot to replace the expiring levy:

    1. a replacement educational programs and operations (EP&O) levy, and
    2. a capital improvement and technology levy.

  • Stanton Senior Block Party

    Posted by Brianna Henry on 6/13/2019

    On Thursday May 23rd, 2019 Washington Fruit sponsored a first ever block party for Stanton Graduates and their families. As our neighbor they wanted to do something that would connect students and families to the community around them and show their support for the hard work our students have put forth throughout the year. It went from 5 to 8pm. HopTown Pizza and Winey Dogs provided food. Washington Fruit also brought in Knocker Balls for fun and entertainment for all. It was a success with over 25 graduates and their families attending. We want to give those businesses a HUGE thank you, we had a lot of fun and truly appreciated it.
