Education in Alaska. Report to the People, Fiscal Year 1988.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
Early in fiscal year (FY) 1988 the Alaska State Board of Education established seven goals and priorities to guide its activities and those of the Department of Education. These goals reflect the legislative mandate that the Department generally supervise and advise Alaska's public schools, recommend plans for improving public schools, and support related educational activities. The goals were (1) to improve the educational experience of students so that each student may reach his or her full potential; (2) to define and identify "at risk" students and develop and support preventative and remedial strategies; (3) to develop and recommend implementation of a system to assure greater accountability for success in the public school experience; (4) to strive to improve the skills of teachers, school administrators, and education support personnel in their professional growth and development; (5) to examine and propose incentives and alternatives to promote greater efficiency in the administration of school districts; (6) to develop an action agenda to increase support of public education by participating in an education coalition; and (7) to define, develop, and support the programs of the Department of Education. This annual report describes activities of the Department of Education and various districts, schools, and supplemental programs such as museums and libraries that were undertaken to meet these goals. Included are a financial summary and statistical charts outlining FY 1987 school enrollments; school operating fund expenditures; school operating fund revenues; food services, pupil activity and special revenue funds; cigarette tax distribution; debt retirement; and general operating fund balances. A directory of Alaska Department of Education Offices for FY 1988 is given. (ALL)
