Travis and Steve flew out to address various maintenance jobs that had been requested on School Dude. We were lucky to have them here all week. They worked very hard during cold weather to haul fuel from the air strip to our tank. We had been struggling with a boiler that just refused to work right and were able to get heat back in our rooms at the right temperature. They fixed 3 lights at the back of the school that no one else has been able to fix and there is light there for the first time this year. We knew Steve from past jobs and always welcome his friendly face and the way he works above and beyond what is necessary. We got to know Travis for the first time since we didn't get to see him over the summer when he was out and are happy to say he is just as great as Steve. While they were waiting for a plane to come out after their work was finished, Travis got out a scooter and made the kindergarteners day. Someone new to play with! Thanks so much, guys.
Sue is usually the first person that greets you when you enter KMS, she is pleasant and always willing to help. I've been in there several times when she's talking to students and she's courteous with them and very gentle. She is a great ambassador for our district and I appreciate her very much.
Mr. Hanna is in charge of Drama Club, and they were having a meeting at lunch. A student of mine really wanted to go, but she was too shy. I asked Mr. Hanna if it was okay if I brought the student to meet him during class so she would be more comfortable. He's always so busy, but he took time to sit down with her, and talk about her ideas and concerns. He was patient, kind, and incredibly welcoming. My student left the meeting excited to try drama. I am very grateful to Mr. Hanna for being generous with his time.

Service. Dependability. Leadership. These are the special character traits the Kodiak Rotary is celebrating when its members bestow the Rotary Youth Merit Award upon six deserving Kodiak Middle School students — two students per grade level — each quarter. The students are nominated for the award by their grade-level teachers.
Educators agree that student grades should paint a realistic picture of how student effort and ability relate to achievement and promote learning. After all, shouldn’t student grades be a meaningful measure of student achievement? Still, there is a debate in education as to what that meaningful measure is and how it is generated. Clarity is essential, and there are certain questions educators must ask themselves in the creation of their grading systems:
Kodiak Island Borough School District Stewart McDonald has been named one of four finalists for 2017 National Superintendent of the Year.
Kodiak Island Borough School District’s Assistant Superintendent Marilyn Davidson has a particular love of the arts. As a former music teacher, this is not surprising. Arts education is her calling, and she based her career on the belief that arts education is vital for every student, providing creative opportunities for learners to understand their own humanity.
While solid academics and graduation rates are the primary goals of every school district, how faculty, staff and students feel about their schools and classmates and their connection to them is important as well.
During its November Retreat, the Kodiak Island Borough School District’s Board of Education began a dialogue about the district’s citizen advisory committees. The discussion continued during the BOE’s December work session.
The future of Kodiak’s commercial fishing fleet is uncertain, according to recent research completed by the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Sea Grant Alaska, the Alaska Marine Conversation Council and the North Pacific Research Board.
