Alaska Wind for Schools program is a national program that KIBSD became involved in 3 years ago. Thanks to the US Coast Guard for donating the wind turbine and the many businesses that made this program a possibility. The program uses a wind turbine and the data and mechanics to teach K through 12 students about science, technology, engineering concepts.
Kodiak Workforce Regional Advisory Council (KWRAC) spent most of last year conducting an employment needs survey throughout Kodiak Island communities.
