Yale community, I’d like to start off by saying how excited I am to be leading the Yale School district. Please know that my door is always open. I can’t always promise you the answer you are looking for, but I can promise you that all concerns, suggestions, and opinions will be heard and taken into consideration. Secondly, the Yale Schools Return to Learn Plan is posted on the school website. We are hoping that things continue to improve with Covid-19. If so, we plan to return to school in August with masks being optional for students and staff. Also, we plan to allow visitors to report to the main office in both buildings. For a more comprehensive list of guidelines, please visit www.yale.k12.ok.us These guidelines could change if the situation is warranted at any time. Please feel free to share your questions, concerns, or suggestions. We all want what’s best for our students. Let’s continue to work together to accomplish that goal. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, Coach Kennedy

2021-2021 District Policy for Child Find
Congratulations to the Yale High School graduating class of 2021. We are proud of you, and we are excited to see what your future holds.
Yale Public School Board of Education is proud to announce the hiring of our new superintendent, Rocky Kennedy. Mr. Kennedy has been an educator for 22 years; 13 of those years have been with Yale as a teacher, coach, athletic director, and principal. Mr. Kennedy has worked side-by-side with Mr. Bledsoe, training and preparing for this opportunity. With his leadership--and our outstanding faculty and staff--our school district will continue the success we have witnessed during the past seven years. Education is in Mr. Kennedy’s blood. His father, Buddy Kennedy, was a well-known and greatly respected educator and coach, and all four of Mr. Kennedy’s siblings serve as educators across the state. He understands the importance of public education and has made it his passion to provide students with every opportunity possible to find success. He will continue to put students first and appreciates the input from parents, staff, students, and community members. “I look forward to building on the success we have seen over the last several years, and ensuring that the students are as successful as possible,” stated Mr. Kennedy. According to board president, Terry Minney, “Who better to serve as our district’s CEO, the person who will oversee the daily operations of our school district, than a person who has served in almost every capacity and level in our district.” The BOE is very excited for the opportunity to work with Rocky Kennedy as we wind down the 20-21 school year and begin preparations for the 21-22 school year. Our district is known for excellence and for setting high standards for students and staff. With Mr. Kennedy and our superior team working together to serve students, we look forward to continuing the legacy of excellence.
