Through collaborative efforts with our families and community we can reach our goal

Students will attend school at least 90% of the time


A missed school day is a lost opportunity for students to learn. District data shows there is a direct correlation between our students who attend school regularly and higher academic achievement levels. In order to reach attendance goals, students can miss no more than 17 days of school per year, that's the equivalent of two days per month. Instilling the value of coming to school every day is important to start at a young age.


Through our collaborative efforts with the community and conversations with families around the importance of daily attendance, we are seeing improvement

Anchorage School District Goals and Initiatives for 2016/17

The aspirations and requirements for educating students in today's world are vastly different than they were even a decade ago. In order to ensure we are providing the best education possible to our students, we must have a shared vision with a strategic focus. The district's comprehensive, multi-year plan to increase student achievement outlines where we want to be and provides a roadmap to help us get there. This plan will shape educational opportunities around the community's ever-evolving needs and build upon the momentum of the last several years.
