Adult Basic Education SPSCC Partnership

  • Yelm Community Schools has expanded its educational vision beyond K-12. Through partnerships with SPSCC, Yelm Timberland Library, and the South Sound YMCA, YCS offers English as a Second Language and High School + Diploma completion courses locally at Yelm Extension School, and promotes SPSCC's Adult Digital Literacy course.

    As part of the district's larger Graduate Yelm! initiative, YCS formed strong regional partnerships to address a broader range of educational needs. The district's goal is to remove every conceivable barrier to educational attainment for Yelm citizens. Through High School + and ESL Class, students have access to Chromebooks; onsite YMCA childcare; and printing, wifi, and electronic research tools through Yelm Timberland Library. SPSCC further provides career counseling, including financial information and access to certificate and degree programs. All services are free of charge to High School + and ESL students.
