Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s):
Recently the Alaska Department of Education & Early Development (DEED) released the 2017-
2018 Report Cards to the Public for each school district and school in Alaska. This new user-
friendly website aims to provide families with clear, common information about all public
schools and districts in our State. These report cards to the public contain data and information
about academics, school environment, teacher quality, and more.
To view a 2017-2018 school or district report card to the public, go to
education.alaska.gov/reportcardtothepublic. Once there, you will be able to select which school
or district report card to the public you wish to view. If you are unable to access the report
cards to the public online, please contact your student’s school.
We know that the report card to the public is just one of many ways you will engage with us at
Girdwood PreK-8 School. We look forward to sharing our school’s successes with you, and working
together to make our school better every day. In particular, we are proud that at Girdwood PreK-8 School the report card to the public shows us doing well in several areas.
We hope you will closely follow your student’s academic progress and work with his or her
teacher(s) to help ensure academic success. Working together as a team, we can improve not
only how well our students are performing individually, but how our school and district is
performing as a whole. There is nothing more important to administrators and teachers at
Girdwood PreK-8 School than ensuring that students are ready for the next step in their
academic career. We look forward to partnering with you.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding our school or district report card to the public,
please don’t hesitate to contact us at (907) 742-5300.
Principal, Girdwood School
