Welcome to the Yankton School District and the 2016-2017 school year!

The community of Yankton believes in a strong commitment to education, which is evident in the programs and opportunities available to our students.    The Yankton School District has a  reputation for excellence in Academics, Career and Technical Education, Fine Arts and Extracurricular programing.  Our focus on the whole child means students are educated to become  successful, productive citizens who are critical thinkers and who exhibit strong character.

Students learn best when educators develop meaningful partnerships with parents and the community.  We encourage and value your input as parents and patrons of the Yankton School District.    We believe in working together for the benefit of our children, families and community.

We will continue to reach out to our business community and partner with them to ensure we have a strong and viable educational system, which encourages graduates to return to Yankton and grow our community.  Economic Development and Education go hand in hand.  A skilled and educated workforce compliments the ever growing needs facing many of our current businesses.

The Mission Statement of the Yankton School District is to optimize student potential for success in a global society.  I welcome you to be part of the change and vision for our students.  We need our entire community to become an engaged and welcomed partner of the Yankton School District.

The education and safety of our students is very important to me.  I will work very hard to make sure we provide an outstanding education and safe learning environment for our students, as well as staff.

You are always welcome to contact me at any time to visit.

Henry Ford stated, “Coming together is a beginning.  Staying together is a process.  Working together is a success.”  
Let’s have another great school year!
