School Districts

Yakima County is divided into 17 separate school districts, each governed by a
five-member board of directors who serve regular four (4) year terms. Their responsibilities focus on four areas: Quality of instruction, district planning, policy development and communications. Directors are local policy makers and serve as a link between the school system and the public.

Board members are elected in a nonpartisan general election by all voters within the school district. They receive no salary. Board members are partners in a management team and share in a variety of management decisions from fiscal accounting, employment of teachers, educational materials, and facilities to transportation services.

School directors are called upon to be leaders in the following areas:
     √ assessing and reflecting the educational needs and values of the community;
     √ developing an educational philosophy;
     √ establishing school district goals;
     √ providing for program development activities;
     √ reviewing the financial needs of the districts;
     √ assuring systematic review and evaluation of all phases of the school program

Jesse Orozco

I was appointed to serve on the Toppenish School District Board of Directors in August 2012.  Providing service to my community is growing on me and I invite the opportunity to serve you for the next 4 years.

I graduated from Toppenish High 1990 and attended Yakima Valley Community College.  I’m a Realtor and I also operate the family business in Toppenish.

I look forward to living in a strong vibrant community and I believe that by working alongside individuals with a love for life, and a passion to produce quality educated citizens, we will have strong communities.
