August enrollment intent survey now open

Soldotna, April 5, 2020—Assistant Superintendent Clayton Holland requests help from KPBSD parents to plan for the school year beginning in August, through a brief intent to enroll survey, open through Friday, April 16, 2021.

Dear KPBSD parents and students,

When school begins in August, KPBSD will offer in-person learning at all 42 schools. Alaska has made great strides with the pandemic, and while we are unable to predict the future, it is our intent that students and staff will not be required to wear masks or other face coverings next school year.

To help our schools plan, please answer the following questions on this
short survey that is open April 5-16, 2021. This will help us prepare for the upcoming school year.

Thank you for your time,

Assistant Superintendent Clayton Holland (incoming Superintendent, July 1, 2021)

Take brief districtwide intent to enroll survey—it is simple.
(Everyone is asked to complete the survey even if they already let their school know their intent to return or enroll)


The protocol was updated on 3/25/2021.

Alaska’s standards are specific rigorous expectations for growth in students’ skills across grades.

The ELA and mathematics assessments are administered to students in grades 3-9. The science assessment is administered to students in grades 5, 8, and 10.

Please be sure your child is prepared by getting a good night’s sleep and eating a healthy breakfast.
