Sean Dusek, ASA President
As we work our way through the school year, it is important to have a vision to keep us on the path to success. This year, we are focusing on motivation, modernization, and personalization. It is best to start with a student-learning perspective on what these words mean.
Forget Finland, Europe Wants To Be like Alaska
Stewart McDonald, 2016 Superintendent of the Year
With Every Student Succeeds Act now in place, Alaska is looking for its vision for education. Some of Alaska schools are already becoming the standard of excellence on the world stage. An Alaska high school won in the international university level competition in the NASA World Wind Europa Challenge both in 2015 and again in 2016. This is more than a success story, it is an example how Alaska schools demonstrate excellence on the world stage.
Change is Here – Where Are We?
Dr. Lisa Skiles Parady, ACSA/ASA/AASSP Executive Director
Today’s environment for educational leaders across Alaska is the most challenging I have seen in over 20 years. Make no mistake—from the inherent complexities in bringing every student in every school to their full potential, to coping with unprecedented threats to our fundamental foundation funding, to leading our staffs to be their best in the face of such uncertainty—we all have our hands full. Very full.
