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.
The Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP) has replaced the Standards Based Assessments (SBA) and will start at Woodriver on March 31st. The AMP is a computerized test and due to the number of students testing we will be spliting the testing into a two week period of time. The testing schedule is listed below.
March 31- 3 & 5th grade: English/Language Arts Test
April 1- 3 & 5th grade: Math Test
April 3- 4th grade: Science Test (Only required for 4th graders)
April 7- 4 & 6th grade: English/Language Arts Test
April 8- 4 & 6th grade: Math Test
As you might have noticed with the new test there are only two days of testing for students instead of the 3 there used to be when we used the SBAs. We will have make up day session open to students any day after the original testing dates. Testing will be starting in the classrooms at approximately 9:15-9:20 each morning. Please call of the front office (479-4211) if you have questions.
Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP)
AMP is computer-based and will be administered for the first time in spring 2015. Learn more about the new assessment and technology practice tests at the Alaska Assessments website.
Students in grades 4, 8, and 10 will take the Alaska Science Standards Based Assessment on April 3, which remains a paper and pencil test.
