Anchorage School Board
Creating a high performing district
Agendas, memos and documents
School board documents are now available through BoardDocs. Documents prior to October 2012 are in the board archives. Board committee information is available under the "Library" tab. Policies are also now available under the "Policies" tab.
The Anchorage School Board is a municipal-wide elected body with governance responsibility for the Anchorage School District. As a governance board, it is our responsibility to:
- set a clear direction for the district;
- empower and hold accountable the superintendent for implementing our direction and managing district operations;
- develop and adopt policies and budgets that support and implement the board’s direction; and
- model the professionalism and degree of effort they expect from students, families and staff.
Destination 2020 is the district’s comprehensive, multi-year plan to increase student achievement. It is built on the district’s mission, vision and core values as outlined by the school board.
The Anchorage School Board meets twice a month using the following format:
- 2:30-4 p.m. Work session in conference room 150
- 4-5:30 p.m. Regular meeting – early session in the boardroom
- 5:30-6:30 p.m. Executive session (closed door) in conference room 150
- 6:30 p.m. Regular meeting – late session in the boardroom
The early and late sessions of the regular meeting are broadcast live on ASD-TV both online or on cable channel 14. Audio from the work session and video from the regular meetings are available on-demand through ASD-TV's website. On-demand availability is delayed a day or more due to the processing time required.
You may sign up to testify, in person or telephonically, on an agenda item or other topic not on the agenda. The early and late sessions are regarded as one meeting. Because of this, the public may testify on any agenda item from the early or late session at the beginning of either session. All non agenda topics are discussed at the end of the late session. Speaking time is limited to three minutes.
School board meetings are held at the ASD Education Center, 5530 E Northern Lights Blvd., unless otherwise noted. An assistive listening system is available for use in the school board meeting room. To obtain headsets and information, call 907-742-4312.
