Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
This report summarizes statewide data and individual school district performance for Alaska's 53 school districts and addresses how well the districts are meeting the goals of the Alaska Quality Schools Initiative. The report is divided into four sections that address the four components of the initiative: high student academic standards and assessment; quality professional standards; family, school, business, and community network; and school excellence standards. The first section, on student assessment, includes results of the California Achievement Test, National Assessment of Educational Progress, Scholastic Assessment Test, and American College Test. This section also includes information on the number of students who passed advanced placement examinations, number of high school graduates, and number of students who received an alternative diploma or certificate. The second section includes information on statewide performance standards for teachers and administrators, licensing and continuing development, teacher salaries, and the number of Alaska hires for 1996. The third section summarizes school district efforts to increase parent involvement in schools. Six districts are currently involved in Partnership 2000, a national initiative to provide opportunities for parent and family support of student learning. The fourth section includes information on school accreditation, certification of preschool education programs, student attendance rate, 9th-grade-cohort graduation rate, annual dropout rates for grades 7-12, environmental education, and total education revenues and expenditures for 1995-96. Data on individual school districts include demography, supplemental program participation, and results of the California Achievement Test. Includes a list of Alaska school districts and superintendents and many data tables and figures. (LP)
