NCLB, Alaska Statute 14.03.120 and State Regulation 4 AAC 06.895 require each school and district to disseminate a report card to parents before the school opens for instruction in the fall. Each school site, working with the district, is responsible for determining the format of the report, however the elements are in 4 AAC 06.895, and can be found in Appendix C of this document. The state statute requires that each district provide to the department a report on the performance of each public school and the public school students in the district. The Department is required to provide an annual report on the performance of public schools in the state to the Governor, the state legislature and the U.S. Department of Education. The State Board of Education approved new regulations in the fall of 2003 to support the integration of the state and federal report card requirements. You can review the regulations, 4 AAC 06.895, relevant to district and school report cards in Appendix C of this document. This handbook has been developed to assist districts in meeting the requirements of education planning and in collecting, reporting and verifying the information required to comply with AS 14.03.120 in the Public School Report Card to the Public, NCLB and 4 AAC 06.895. Alaska Statute requires districts to submit information for the Report Card on forms provided by the Department. The department will collect data from districts on Excel spreadsheet forms. School districts are encouraged to design their own forms for reporting district and school information to parents and the public.
