Superintendent's Message

My name is Rick Clark, Educational Doctorate (Ed.D.), and I am the Superintendent of Schools for Yellow Medicine East - ISD 2190.  I am pleased and privileged to be able to serve the district and students of Yellow Medicine East - ISD 2190.

A brief autobiography of my educational background consists of a high school diploma from Toms River North High School (NJ), Bachelors of Art from University of Sioux Falls, Masters of Science from Northern State University, a second degree from Northern State University, Educational Specialist Degree from the University of South Dakota and a Doctorate Degree from the University of South Dakota (SD).  I have taught grades 4-12, been principal for grades K-12, activities director for grades 6-12 and superintendent of three (3) schools.  

I believe strongly that education is the great equalizer.  A quality education is the most consistent tool that allows people to advance their socio-economic status.  I believe that education is the only thing that cannot be taken from you. I believe that, as educators, it is our privilege and responsibility to provide ALL students with the best possible opportunities for their educational quest.

We encourage parents and grandparents to be an active participant in your student’s education.  All of the employees of Yellow Medicine East - ISD 2190 will do our very best every day to provide quality learning opportunities for all children.  

On behalf of the Board of Education and all of the employees/staff of Yellow Medicine East - ISD 2190, I welcome you to the new and improved website for your school district.  It is our hope that this new website will provide you with all the information you might seek and provide that information in more logical search criteria.  Please search the website and do not hesitate to provide comments to the Webmaster or me.  

Thank you for trusting your student(s) to us at Yellow Medicine East - ISD 2190.

Sincerely yours in education,

Dr. Rick Clark, Superintendent of Schools
