District Announcements

  • 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.

  • Davis Health Clinic

    Posted by Staci George on 11/5/2019

    Lots has happened at the Davis Health Clinic this year. We have expanded our hours from 2 half days last school year to 4 full days! Our medical care is currently being staffed by a handful of Community Health of Central Washington providers who are volunteering their days off to the clinic. It’s been amazing! Our full time ARNP starts mid-January, we are very excited to have her! We also have Behavioral Health here three half days a week and have had over 200 visits already. We ended last school year with just over 100 visits. Our collaboration with the school has improved tremendously and we continue to find ways to strengthen it. We have an established Community Advisory Board that offers tons of amazing support in addition to a wonderful outreach team! It’s been great to be part of a team that has come together to serve the students at AC Davis High School.

  • DECA "Blanket Drive"

    Posted by Jim Kindle on 10/29/2019

    The Davis Chapter of DECA took on the challenge of collecting blankets to donate to families and children at Camp Hope. This was the first community service/leadership endeavor that the Davis chapter has undertaken, and to top it all off, the chapter was competing against West Valley's DECA Chapter. The drive started on October 14th and culminated Thursday, October 24th at the Davis vs. West Valley football game. When our DECA members arrived at the football game, they were greeted by West Valley members, and quickly learned that our chapter was behind 115 blankets to West Valley's 199 (including pillows). As our Davis community always does, blankets came from every which direction from our families, community members, students, and teachers. By the time the event ended at the horn of the 1st quarter, our chapter had overcome the deficit we had. The DECA Chapter of Davis HS would like to thank all teachers, students, and families who donated blankets. Over 400 blankets and pillows will be taken to Camp Hope from both DECA chapters of Davis HS and West Valley HS, in hopes of making a difference. Blanket Drive The Pirate community always stands tall, and strives to make Yakima a better place for all.
