Access

Student Enrollment Instructions:

Yakima Online students enroll in one course at a time. The expectation is for them to complete one course every three weeks. The course is determined after a credit evaluation is conducted by the counselor.
Formal registration is conducted 2 times per school calendar year, however, students can enter Yakima Online at any time during the school year. We close registration around May 7 due to the fact that students may not be able to finish a course by the end of the school year in June. We make exceptions to all of our guidelines for extenuating circumstances. These are reviewed by our principal.
Each student takes an orientation course to orient the students to our online learning platform. The students also take the TABE to see if their Reading level is at the 6th Grade; Math 5th grade; and writing 4th grade. The course content is at or above these levels.
The students attend an intake (with their parent if available-middle/high school level) and we have the students do a PowerPoint presentation and answer questions for understanding at the end.
