Demographics/GIS Services is responsible for providing demographic and geographical information as well as analytical support for Anchorage School District decision-making and planning. The department maintains data and information on past, present and anticipated enrollment; race and ethnicity; school boundaries and capital improvement plans.
The Anchorage School Board is responsible for providing an adequate educational environment for the students of Anchorage. To fulfill this obligation, the board regularly engages in comprehensive long-range planning of school facility construction, renovation and maintenance. On an annual basis, the board adopts a Six-Year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) that addresses the anticipated levels of student enrollment and shifts in enrollment, along with school facility condition and functionality from an educational perspective. This plan delineates the construction priorities for the district over the succeeding six-year period.
