2019 School Board Elections

We strongly encourage anyone with a strong interest in serving Yinghua Academy to consider School Board candidacy and attend an upcoming School Board meeting (February 25 or March 25 at 6 p.m.) Read this letter for additional information and complete the short form: 2019 School Board Candidate Letter and Form. The deadline to submit the form to file as a 2019 candidate for the Yinghua Academy School Board is March 5, 2019.

Open Enrollment Extended, Lottery Postponed

During Yinghua’s designated Open Enrollment period, due to extreme weather conditions the school was closed for four days. The school has therefore extended the Open Enrollment period and postponed by one week the 2019-2020 Enrollment Lottery.

Yinghua enrollment applications must be mailed via US Post or delivered in person to the school. Our closure created potential difficulties for interested families to deliver their enrollment applications to us in person, and we did not receive mail for eight days. 

The Open Enrollment deadline has been changed from February 8 to February 14, at 5:00 p.m. We hope that this extension provides all families the necessary additional time to complete and submit applications. The 2019-2020 Enrollment Lottery has been rescheduled from Wednesday, February 13, to Wednesday, February 20, at 6:00 p.m.
