Alaska's Public Schools: 2015-2016 Report Card to the Public
Alaska Department of Education & Early Development
Alaska's Department of Education & Early Development shares a vision that all students can succeed in their education and work, shape meaningful lives for themselves, exemplify the best values of society, and be effective in improving the character and quality of the world about them. To support this mission, the Alaska State Board of Education and Early Development has developed five strategic priorities. They are: (1) Amplify student learning; (2) Inspire community ownership of educational excellence; (3) Modernize the education system; (4) Ensure excellent educators; and (5) Promote safety and well-being. These strategic priorities focus the public school system on fulfilling the mission of providing an excellent education for every student every day. This Report Card to the Public provides important factual information about Alaska's schools' and districts' performance over the past school year. Readers can learn at-a-glance information about state and national assessments and Alaska's graduation rates, dropout rates, schools recognized for excellence, and schools collaborating with the state on improvements. Families can use this information to know how best to support their school in providing an excellent education for every student. The Department of Education and Early Development now uses social media to share positive messages about education in Alaska and the importance of lifelong learning. Alaska's Department of Education and Early Development is eager to continue informing and engaging with the public through the Report Card to the Public, about students and schools and what the State Board, department staff, school and district staff, partner organizations, parents, and families can do to support Alaska's students.
