Yuma School District One, AZ

How Education Elements and Google for Education Helped Yuma Create Something Big and New

About the District


Yuma School District One is near the border of Mexico.  Its 17 schools serve students with a diverse set of needs and a majority of students who are English Language learners. But Yuma has never let that get in the way of working to support the success of all students.

The Challenge


Yuma School District One faced two primary challenges: low student achievement, aggravated by a highly transient student population and declining student enrollment.

The Solution: Consulting Services + Technology


Yuma School District One knew it had to do something that was big, bold and equitable.  In 2015, it rolled out personalized learning across all of its 17 schools, making it one of the only school districts at the time willing to go all in, all at once.

Yuma hired Education Elements to help with all aspects of the transformation.  Education Elements supported the district in designing a roll-out plan, codifying their vision for the work, selecting digital content and tools and building knowledge across the district.  

Yuma District One became an avid user of Google products early on, leveraging G Suite for Education and Classrooms to provide opportunities for collaboration across students and teachers.

The Results


Yuma has seen increases in student achievement, as well as in enrollment, since shifting it instructional models and integrating Google products into its classrooms.

“Our District's successes and growth must be credited to the incredibly hard work of our teachers and leaders,” said Rindy Ward.

"But we also must acknowledge the tremendous support from partners, such as Education Elements, who helped us transform our organization, and Google, who gave us the tools to achieve that.”
