Welcome to Youth Educational Services

It is our mission to provide individualized, student-centered learning alternatives that foster the development of responsible, productive citizens.

Distance Learning Period Begins March 30, 2020

Governor Tim Walz and Education Commissioner Mary Cathryn Ricker have announced that all Minnesota public school districts and charter schools will implement a Distance Learning Period beginning on March 30, 2020, until at least April 30, 2020.


We are continuing to monitor the updates on the spread of Covid-19 in the state of Minnesota.  Much of our direction as it pertains to providing education will come from the executive orders put out by our governor, Tim Walz.  In anticipation of his announcement to encourage students and non-essential workers to continue to stay home beyond March 27th, we have been working to find distance learning methods to accompany our Independent Study model already in use. 

Please check with your local internet provider if they have free or reduced service over this time period. Please call (218) 737-6570 to let us know if you do not have internet access. 

In addition to Google Classroom and IXL, we will also be using web resources like Zoom and Google Hangouts.  All of these resources can be accessed through smartphones and various gaming consoles. 

YES teachers will be emailing each student a schedule for class prior to March 30th. Please continue to have your student check and respond to school emails.

We expect there to be some challenges throughout next week as we start up an unfamiliar education delivery format for everyone involved.  We ask that your student reach out to their teacher via email if they experience any technology glitches or are frustrated in any way. Our goal is to continue to deliver equitable education to help our students work toward graduation.

Our primary source of communication is going to be through our YES student email system.  We ask that your student check their email multiple times per day.

Weekly Motivation:
Our student, Dayna Trotti, created this beautiful piece of art specifically for YES, because she said "YES is the only place I've ever been that has been completely accepting and non-judgmental." Thank you, Dayna! We absolutely love it and are very honored!
