K-5 Online Edgenuity

YSD's New 100% Online Option for Elementary Students

NOTICE: K-5 Online Enrollment CLOSES 9-4-20

K-5 Online Edgenuity (new!)

This option will not begin until the week of September 14, 2020. Students will remain enrolled in their boundary school but will attend school through Edgenuity (view an informational video). They will have a YSD teacher, though it may not be a teacher from their building. Through Edgenuity they will work at their pace and can work faster plus have access to upper grades as they complete tasks and show mastery of standards in their current grade. Their teacher will support them, provide interventions, check-in, and guide them through the learning process through the Edgenuity platform. Students must remain enrolled in this format for at least one semester. When in-person learning becomes available, these students will NOT attend school in-person. This is still public school without a fee or tuition.

How is it different than distance learning?

Due to the health status of our community, the Yakima School District recently announced that learning will take place remotely. At YSD, distance learning begins on August 26, 2020. Your student is already enrolled and you do not need to do anything for this option. Students will learn remotely through their boundary school and will have a teacher and classmates from their boundary school the same as they would if we were in person. Their learning will be directed by their teacher. They meet online plus submit assignments and assessments through Google Classroom. When in-person learning becomes available, these students will attend school in-person.

What about grades 6-12?

The Yakima School District has a school called Yakima Online available to students in the 6th-12th grades interested in a 100% online option.

Different from the K-5 online program where students remain enrolled in their boundary school, grades 6-12 actually transfer from their school to Yakima Online. Then they will have access to the Edgenuity platform. Students must commit to this option for a semester.

If you are interested in this for your student, please contact the principal, Lois Menard, at menard.lois@ysd7.org
