Superintendent's Office

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new staff, students, and community members. We are extremely proud of the continued success of our students in the Yankton School District.  We look forward to an exciting 2018-19 school year!


Please take the time to review the various elements contained within the YSD Newsletter that can be found using the link on this page. You will find a great deal of information regarding our schools, such as school supply lists, important telephone numbers, registration dates, and pertinent information regarding the school food service program, as well as school activities. 


Our community has high expectations and a tradition of commitment to education, which is evident in the programs and opportunities available to all of our students.  The Yankton School District is a leader for excellence in Academics, Career and Technical Education, Fine Arts and Extracurricular programming.  Our focus on the whole child begins with tuition-free preschool and educating our students to become successful, productive citizens who are critical thinkers exhibiting strong character.


Students learn best when educators develop meaningful partnerships and relationships with students, 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 are very proud of our students, community, and our outstanding school system.  The education and safety of our students are very important.  We will continue to work very hard to make sure we provide a top-notch education and safe learning environment for our students, as well as staff.

In closing, we sincerely hope that you will find the Yankton School District committed to developing the finest educational system in the state. We believe that with your support, we will continue to provide our students with strong educational programming and caring support.
