Fairbanks North Star Borough School District Gets Report Card

Fairbanks Schools Receive Grades. Want to know how Fairbanks schools are doing? We have the accurate information which shows school performance.

The Alaska Policy Forum has released the report card to the community for the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District. Each school in the District is given a letter grade based on an average of the total student score on reading and math on the Standards Based Assessment (SBA) test. This report card is for the 2012-13 school year. We use the SBA scores because the State has determined that these are valid measurements of students’ progress in specific subject areas. We provide this report card to the community for transparency and accountability purposes. Parents can use this report card to determine if their school is doing well or if they should transfer their child to another school. If you have any questions, please email dboyle@alaskapolicyforum.org.

The State has adopted a new school rating system which we believe does not accurately describe the performance of schools. Read here for our analysis and evaluation of the new Alaska School Performance Indicator system.
