Alaska Goals 2000 Comprehensive State Improvement Plan.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
This document describes Alaska's statewide plan for educational improvement, designed to raise the achievement of all Alaska students and to prepare Alaskans for healthy, productive lives. Challenges to implementation include dramatically varying school populations across the state, the state's enormous size, a high proportion of children living in poverty, and a wealth of languages (85) represented in Alaska's bilingual programs. After a brief history of Alaska's educational reform efforts, the six goals of the plan are delineated, followed by descriptions of the plan development process, the vision and guiding principles, opportunities for public input, subgrant actions, and the structure of the Alaska Goals 2000 Plan. The six plan goals are then described in detail: (1) develop, implement, and assess challenging standards for all students and teachers; (2) share responsibility and be accountable for increased student learning; (3) provide a framework for local school-to-work partnerships for transition from school to work or further training; (4) create technology-rich school environments to help Alaska students and community members become lifelong learners and productive members of the workforce; (5) establish processes in each district and school to involve families and communities to ensure student success; and (6) develop a comprehensive staff-development system.
