Purpose

The Juneau School District Report Card is developed in order to help schools and districts measure our performance on key indicators, identify areas for improvement, and target resources and support for all students to receive an excellent education and be prepared for college or a career after high school. The visualizations of District data that are reported publicly are from measures based primarily on the spring State assessments and therefore are displayed in collaboration with the State Department of Education and Early Development. This overall assessment suite targets English/Language Arts, Mathematics and Science for select grades within the K-10 range.

Juneau School District Stakeholder Letter

Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s):

Recently the Alaska Department of Education & Early Development (DEED) released the 2020-2021 Report Cards to the Public for each school district and school in Alaska. The continuing impact of COVID-19 on the operation of Alaska’s public school buildings throughout the 2020-2021 school year has had a substantial effect on the state’s accountability system and Alaska Report Card to the Public. As a result, the Accountability waiver that was approved on June 9, 2021 limits the data that are available on the Report Card for the 2020-2021 school year. The Reporting Plan for the 2020-2021 Alaska School, District, and State Report Cards outlines the data that will be reported publicly on the website and the data that will likely be accompanied with additional documentation.

To view a 2020-2021 school or district report card to the public, go to https://education.alaska.gov/compass/report-card. Once there, you will be able to select which school or district report card to the public you wish to view. This user-friendly website aims to provide families with clear, common information about all public schools and districts in our State. These report cards to the public contain data and information about academics, school environment, teacher quality, and more. If you are unable to access the Report Card to the Public online, please contact your student’s school.

We hope you will closely follow your student’s academic progress and work with his or her teacher(s) to help ensure academic success. Working together as a team, we can improve not only how well our students are performing individually, but how our schools and District is performing. There is nothing more important to administrators and teachers at the Juneau School District than ensuring that students are ready for the next step in their academic career. We look forward to partnering with you.
