This publication reports on the status of public education in Alaska and provides policymakers with information for decision making. Under state law, each school district is required to report to its community information about the school district's plans and performance. This publication is a summary of those reports. Data are organized around the four key elements of the Alaska Quality Schools Initiative, the state's systemic school improvement plan. The initiative is built around: (1) high student academic standards and assessments; (2) quality professional standards; (3) family, school, business, and community networks; and (4) school excellence standards. Progress in each of these areas is reported, and educational indicators related to these components are summarized. The 53 school districts, and their 128,120 students, have made impressive progress toward the goals of the Alaska Quality Schools initiative, a result of the efforts of many individuals.
