Student and Staff Survey
Students (Grades 3-12 only) and school based staff throughout the Anchorage School District will be taking an online survey during February 13-24, 2017.
Notice to parents
ASD is partnering with the Association of Alaska School Boards and Panorama Education to conduct this annual survey. This statewide survey measures how students and staff view their school climate, and how connected students feel to adults and peers.
Family Partnership has traditionally not participated in this survey. This was primarily due to the differences between the homeschool/correspondence educational experience and the typical experiences of students who attend brick and mortar buildings.
While there will be some questions that do not pertain to our school, there are a number of items that do. Your participation is appreciated and your feedback will help FPCS in our efforts to provide the highest allotments, curricular options, instructional support, and friendly customer service.
The survey is voluntary, anonymous, confidential, and does not ask questions about students’ families.
Pdf versions are available online if you wish to preview the surveys. Please follow the link below:
We hope that everyone will show their support and help Family Partnership put our best foot forward by taking a few minutes to participate in the survey. However, If you do not want your child to take the survey, please notify the school office in writing.

2017 9th Circuit Civics Contest
Not to be Forgotten: Legal Lessons of Japanese Internment
Consider and describe the relevance of the Japanese internment today as our nation combats terrorism.
The contest has two components: 1) Individual students can express their thoughts and ideas in an essay of between 500 and 1,000 words; and 2) Individuals and teams of up to three students can produce a 3-5 minute video on the theme. A student may submit both an essay and a video. A student may submit only one essay and be involved in the production of only one video.
Essays and videos should: 1) Demonstrate an understanding of the history of the internment and its aftermath; 2) Explain what Constitutional powers and rights were brought into conflict by the Hirabayashi, Korematsu, and Endo cases; and 3) Discuss the important role of the Judicial Branch - then and now - in resolving constitutional conflicts involving national security and individual rights.
Open to all high school students from public, private, parochial, and charter schools.
For more information, contact the Ninth Circuit Office of the Circuit Executive, (415) 355-8973 / firstname.lastname@example.org
