Board of Education // Community Survey
The Fairbanks North Star Borough School Board and School District are embarking upon the development of a long-term strategic plan for the district. This strategic planning initiative will provide the district with a road map and clearly defined priorities to help ensure district students receive the best education possible.
A key ingredient to this process is community feedback. Throughout the month of March, the school board will collect input via an online community survey. This survey is designed with strategic planning in mind and your perspective will inform the decision making greatly.
Please take 10-15 minutes to complete the survey – your input matters to the overall success.
In April, all 3rd-6th graders across the state of Alaska will be taking the Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP) assessments. These standardized tests will, for the first time, be computer-based. To ensure that all students have access to a laptop to take these assessments, testing will be spread out over a 2-week period in April. Thank you for ensuring that your child is here at school for these mandated assessments. Here is Joy's testing schedule:
