‌Creating a high performing district 

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:

  1. set a clear direction for the district;
  2. empower and hold accountable the superintendent for implementing our direction and managing district operations;
  3. develop and adopt policies and budgets that support and implement the board’s direction; and
  4. model the professionalism and degree of effort they expect from students, families and staff.
