Summary of Alaska's Public School Districts' Report Cards to the Public, School Year 1992-93.
Knight, Dorothy Mae
This publication is the second state-mandated annual report card for Alaska's public school districts, covering the 1992-93 school year. Included are a state summary of all 54 school districts' report cards, individual summaries of school district report cards, a state-operated schools summary, and a state summary of the 1993-94 education plans. Each district is making progress toward its 1992-93 goals by revising specific curricula, developing student outcomes to improve achievement, and keeping the public informed to improve community relations. A goal to improve student performance appeared in 28 districts' l993-94 plans; 31 districts reported receiving recognition for state and national academic achievement for individual students and student teams. Over 85 percent of districts include environmental education concepts in classroom instruction. During 1992-93, the statewide dropout rate was 3.7 percent; the average daily membership increased 3.1 percent statewide; the statewide attendance rate was 93.1 percent; and the promotion rate for grades 2 through 6 was 99 percent. More Alaska students score in the top than the bottom quarter on the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills. Appendices contain information on staff salaries, teacher-pupil ratios, operating expenditures, per pupil expenditures, testing programs, and superintendents' names and addresses. A glossary of terms is included. (MLH)
