Unleashed Cooperative

The Yakima Herald-Republic newspaper's "Unleashed" student journalism feature was launched in 1999 and became funded through an ESD 105 cooperative that currently involves several school districts (East Valley, Naches Valley, Selah, Toppenish, Wapato, West Valley, and Yakima) and two private schools (La Salle and Riverside Christian).
