District News

From Superintendent Holland:

This week is National Teacher Appreciation week! I want to thank all of our teachers for their hard work and dedication to our students, their families, and our communities. The work you have done, and continue to do, is incredible and has made a huge impact on the future of our students. Because of your work, our district stands out as an example in the state of Alaska for all that can be good and positive in education. At a time when people tend to look for and rally around the negative, our district and schools are able to continually show our communities and state the significant positive impact our teachers have in the lives of our students. Thank you, and I’m honored to work with you as together we ensure our schools meet the needs of all of our student population in KPBSD. Thank you!
