Alaska's Public Schools: 2013-2014 Report Card to the Public
Alaska Department of Education & Early Development
This statewide "Report Card to the Public" is published in accordance with Alaska Statute 14.03.120 for the school year 2013-2014. Under state law, each school district is required to report information about its performance. Public knowledge of the school system is an important part of Alaska's school accountability system. This report is a resource for Alaska's parents, community members, and educational policymakers, including legislators, the Governor, the State Board of Education & Early Development, and local school boards. At a glance, this report provides readers with information about state and national assessments, and Alaska's graduation rates, dropout rates, teacher quality, schools recognized for excellence, and schools collaborating with the state on improvements. This report also includes information about the final school year in which the state administered the Standards Based Assessments. The legislature repealed the High School Graduation Qualifying Exam, and in spring 2015, the state will begin new assessments in grades 3 through 10 in English language arts and mathematics, called the Alaska Measures of Progress. The new assessments are geared to Alaska's higher standards, adopted in 2012. The goal of the standards is to develop students academically ready to achieve their personal goals in career training, the military, two-year colleges, and four-year colleges. Assessments help students, parents, and educators follow students' progress toward readiness. The ultimate goal of the Alaska Department of Education & Early Development is for every student to achieve academically at a high level through the guidance of outstanding teachers in high-quality schools.
