Dear Yavapai Accommodation School District Families:

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that our district will transition back to virtual/online learning for the remainder of the semester effective Monday, December 7th through December 17th.

We will keep you updated as we have more information

We know how important it is for our students to be in school – if nothing else, for their social and emotional well-being. I do not know what next month will look like but I promise you we are working together to make the best decisions we can for our students and staff. We appreciate your support and understanding so much. We recognize that these are difficult days for everyone

Greetings Yavapai Accommodation School District Families:

We have two very important messages for you. We have been meeting with on-campus students to review their transcripts and establish a plan for completion. This is VERY, VERY valuable for our students because it helps them come up with their own plan to graduate. Mrs. Burns would like to meet with our online only students either at their homes, at the school, or in a public place that is convenient for the student. She can also do these over the phone or ZOOM. Parents are also welcome and encouraged to attend so that they know exactly where their student’s projected graduation date falls.

Also, we will be opening our school to all of our parents and students for Conferences and Orientation. These dates will be Monday, October 5th and Wednesday, October 7th from 1:00 to 6:00 PM and will be held at our district office at 2972 Centerpointe East Drive in Prescott. Visitors can meet with teachers and staff to discuss student progress, grades, graduation plans, tackle any technical issues you might be having, and learn about Edgenuity and Google Classrooms. Please call or email Mrs. Burns to schedule your visit. Teachers will also be calling next week to request specific students to attend. You can contact Mrs. Burns at 928 759 8126 or email her at kburns@yavapaicountyhs.org. We hope to see you here!

About YASD

Yavapai Accommodation School District #99 serves the students of Yavapai County. We have two fully accredited high schools in our district.  Aspire High School is located in Prescott, and Yavapai County High School is located in Prescott Valley.

We serve a variety of students. Most students who enroll do so because they have fallen behind in their high school credits and wish to get caught up with the hopes of graduating on time.  Some students attend our school because a traditional setting in does not fit their needs.  Some come to us as a result of a lack of thriving in their classes, apprehension of attending larger schools, or simply because they enjoy the small class sizes and/or blended learning model that other schools do not offer. Other students attend our school because of the more individualized instruction and ability to work at their own pace.  Some come because of the 4-day school week and various sessions available.  No matter the reason, we have a team of caring staff that can help your high school student thrive in their quest to obtain a high school diploma.

We are a school utilizing blended learning using both online and traditional learning experiences with highly qualified teachers in the classroom.  Students’ learning and educational paths are tailored to their own needs.  We strive to increase the level of instruction of courses and engage students in more meaningful classroom activities and learning opportunities. We have computer based content and a full range of classes that can enable students to graduate from high school. Our teachers deliver instruction in the classroom for a portion of the time as part of their grade.

We have a 4-day school week, running Monday through Thursday.  Aspire High School students attend from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  Yavapai County High School students can choose from two sessions; the first session runs from 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM, and second session runs from 12:30 PM to 5:30 PM.
