    Yakima School District (YSD) is one of three school districts across the country partnering with Arizona State University (ASU) on a pilot program to increase access to college-level courses in high schools.
    ASU offers a series of Universal Learner Courses (ULCs), where students can earn college credits at an accessible cost. These credits can then be applied to associate or undergraduate degrees at a college or university of the students’ choice, including ASU.
    Nearly 75 ninth grade students at Eisenhower and AC Davis High School are currently enrolled in an ASU ULC online health class. Students take this class as part of their six-period day schedule and are supported in the classroom by YSD-certified teachers. Next semester, students will have the opportunity to take a biology class with a college credit option.
    We are excited about this partnership that provides creative pathways for students to complete a postsecondary degree.
